CHILD ISSUES AND PARENTING
RELOCATION

 

Relocation: Do I need to do anything

 

If you wish to relocate with your child, or you have become aware that the other parent of your child wishes to relocate, you need to actively take steps to protect your position and plan to get the best possible outcome for you and your child. 

If you do nothing, you may lose your chance to do so.

You can apply to the Court for permission to relocate. 

You can also apply to the Court to stop the other parent relocating. 

If you haven’t got Consent Orders, then you should think about trying to get them in place and make sure they have a strong relocation clause in them. 

If you’ve got Consent Orders and they don’t have a relocation clause in them, then you should write out and have both parents sign and date a Parenting Plan which says it is varying the Court Order. 

The Parenting Plan should include a strong relocation clause as well as any other changes you want to make to the Court Order. 

If a Consent Order is in place, a subsequent signed Parenting Plan will usually override it and so be binding. 

The Federal Police may want to see it in a Court Order however and so you may want to vary your existing Consent Order to include a strong relocation clause.
