Unless agreed to, the process by which this is achieved requires careful consideration to avoid a Hague Convention claim to bring the child/ren back.

A parent may wish to relocate (within the State or the Country), or even travel overseas for reasons relating to family connections, employment opportunities or a support network.

Relocation cases signify a deliberate change of life circumstances for the children and has a significant impact on the family structure making contact with the children harder for the non-resident parent / carer

Relocation involves one party moving away from the family home taking the children with them.

  • “Family law conflicts are very difficult to negotiate both personally and to the non-lawyer confronted by the confusing legal system. Having previously had a very bad experience, we felt supported and properly advised in our journey through the family law system and continue to be most grateful to Kate and to Nic for providing us with state of the art professional and personal advice.”

  • “When we bought our business in 2009, Nic Clayhills professionally guided us through the process to completion, there was no stone left unturned. Four years later and Nic’s due diligence is invaluable. When we engaged Clayhills Escobar we didn’t understand that we would be forming one of our most important business relationships. Nic, over the years, has successfully advised and represented us. I could not recommend Nic more highly.”

Common Relocation and Travel Questions

  • Will the non-resident parent see the children as often as before?
    No.  These are often very difficult matters, especially when it means that to allow one parent to take the children to another town, city or country means that the children may not see the other parent as often as they used to.
  • Can the parent with the children be required to come back?
    In certain circumstances, Police and International countries are involved in helping bring back children.  In less extreme and more modest cases one party wishes to move on and find a better life for themselves and the children, and mostly a relocation can occur on agreed terms.
