Areas of Practice
Judges now have wide discretion in considering a parent’s request to re-locate with their children. The court will consider any detriment associated with such a move as well as the best interests of the child when determining whether custody should be changed to the parent who remains.
When deciding whether to grant the move the court is required to consider many factors, including:
- · Stability and continuity of custodial relationships
- · Distance of move
- · Ages of children
- · Relationships between parents
- · Child’s preference re move

This can be a very tricky area of the law, and experience in knowing how to maneuver through the courts and deal with associated experts is critical to any chance for success.
