CHILD ISSUES AND PARENTING
RELOCATION

 

Can I stop the other parent relocating with my Child

 

Can the other Parent take my Child

 

Does a parent need the permission of the other parent to move away with the child?

Generally, the Court cannot prevent a parent from relocating to live somewhere else, however the Court does have the power to stop a parent from taking their child to live with them if that will be some distance away from the other parent.

We're on friendly terms: When should I worry about possible Relocation by the other parent

 

You have just separated, you are all living in the same area, nobody is thinking about relocation, you have reached agreement on living arrangements for the Children, it’s working and you do not want to rock the boat, you want to keep it amicable. 

Or, you have some sort of agreement with your former partner for parenting arrangements and you don't want to make them angry by trying to put it in writing or make it official.

Those are common situations.

Especially if you are the parent who doesn't have your child living with you most of the time, you may have a niggling concern about the other parent taking their child to live with them somewhere else in the state (out of your general area or future away), or even in another state.

But things change:

  • A parent may want to move to where they have more family support or assistance;
  • They may want to move back to where they are originally from;
  • Your former partner will eventually get a new spouse.  Their new partner might live somewhere else (especially in this age of internet dating);
  • Your former spouse will eventually re-partner and that new partner might get a job somewhere else;
  • The other parent may feel like they need a fresh start in a new location;
  • A parent might be offered a better job;
  • They might be offered a promotion in another area.
