Our team regularly acts for parents who wish to move overseas with their children. Unless the written permission of the other parent (and anyone else with parental responsibility) is provided you will need the permission of the Court and we can help guide you through that process and advise you on both the legal procedure and also the practical issues you need to consider.
It is important to ensure that the consent of the other party with parental responsibility is clear and unambiguous or there could be serious consequences following departure. Our team can help you draft an arrangement which could be used in the event of a dispute.
Our team also has the expertise to give you the best chance of success in applying for permission from the Court to take your child abroad permanently.
If the consent of the other party with parental responsibility is not obtained or if the permission of the Court is not granted and you remove your child from England and Wales, you could be committing international child abduction.
