Relocation

Relocation cases either decided by the Court or negotiated out of Court

We all live in a globalised world. Today more and more people move home both within Australia and overseas. Relocation is one of the most difficult matters that parties face at the Family Court. Balancing a person’s freedom of movement versus the needs of children to maintain a proper and meaningful relationship is a complex issue that needs to be handled with sensitivity and care.

At York we have acted in many relocation cases both decided by Court and those negotiated out of Court. The facts are important. The way the issue is handled is crucial and can impact on the ultimate result.
