Moving your children abroad after a separation
Connie Atkinson explains the options and process behind moving your children abroad following a separation.
Considering divorce or separation is stressful and affects people in different ways. Our experienced family lawyers will listen and discuss the options with you.
The majority of divorces and separations involve consideration of the family's financial arrangements. Our lawyers are highly regarded for their ability to give practical and clear advice on the financial implications of relationship breakdown.
Our team of family lawyers has a longstanding reputation in advising unmarried parents on financial claims on behalf of children under the provisions of Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989.
The law as to moving within England and Wales has become more in line with applications to relocate abroad. Our team has considerable experience in advising clients who wish to move with their children to a different part of the UK.
Both parents (if they have parental responsibility) must consent to their child being taken out of the country (even if it is just for a holiday). Failure to obtain such a consent could be classed as child abduction. We have a longstanding reputation in acting for or advising parents who wish to take their child abroad to live and parents who want to prevent such a move.
We have considerable expertise in guiding our clients through the legal issues affecting their children and placing them at the centre of all decisions made following separation to minimise any potential distress for them.
