Relocation disputes arise between separated parents when one of them proposes to move to a different geographic location with their child and the other parent objects to the plan. No matter where the proposed move is to be, the consequence of either allowing or refusing a relocation application is usually of the greatest importance to the parents and children involved. From a UK legal perspective, this book offers practitioners and parents a comprehensive handbook on the law and practice which is needed to successfully handle any relocation dispute, whether it ends up in court or not. The book explains the entire process of dealing with a relocation case. After a detailed discussion of both international and UK relocation law (including case examples and key summaries), it moves step-by-step through the entire process of a case, from first discussions to final hearings and appeals. Essential relocation cases and relevant Practice Directions are also contained in the appendices, making this an indispensable guide for anyone working in this complex and fast-changing area of law and practice. This second edition is fully updated to reflect all the latest UK case law developments, including detailed consideration of Brussels IIr and the 1996 Hague Convention, with new sections on applications for interim relocation and current research findings.
