Child Relocation and Holidays

Resolving Disputes Over Where Your Children Live

Child Relocation Law is a complex area of children law and requires particular expertise. Venters Solicitors have a specialist team of solicitors who are experts in this area of Children Law. Child relocation law is sometimes referred to as leave to remove or permission to remove a child abroad. Internal relocation relates to a child being relocated within the jurisdiction of England and Wales and international child relocation relates to a relocation abroad.

If you are separated from your children’s parent, disputes can arise over who has the right to take your child or children on holiday or to live abroad.

The type of situations which the Court can decide in relation to Child Relocation is as follows:-

  • Who can take your child or children on holiday (temporary removal from the jurisdiction of England and Wales)
  • Who can relocate the child or children to another country (permanent removal from the jurisdiction of England and Wales)

If there is a Child Arrangements Order which has decided with whom the child should live or if there is a Residence Order in place, then the parent with whom the child lives does not need the permission of the other parent for a trip abroad for a period of less than one month. However, it is advisable to always inform the other parent of a planned trip and if they do not agree, then your intentions should be put in writing, preferably by a lawyer to ensure that if problems arise in the future and there is any uncertainty about either your intentions or the notification you gave to the other parent, this will help clarify matters.
