Relocation is the term that applies in Family Law cases when one party wishes to move and take the children to another place, State or country, that will impact on the other party’s ability to have the children live with them or spend time with them. DCH Legal Group has extensive experience in dealing with both domestic and international relocation matters.

The best interests of the children is the paramount consideration in all children’s matters, including matters where one of the parents wants to relocate with the children.

At DCH Legal Group we will assist you in all areas of relocation matters including:

  • negotiating an agreement with the other parent about the relocation of the children;
  • preparing consent orders in relation to relocation matters;
  • if you and the other parent do not agree on the children relocating, we can prepare the court documents required to file an application in the Family Court and help represent you at all Court hearings whether you are for or against the children relocating; and
  • if you are concerned about the other parent leaving their present address in circumstances that will impact on the children’s arrangements or leaving Australia with your children, we can prepare the court documents required to guard against this.
