Course Aims:

This podcast is aimed at family law practitioners interested in the law relating to child relocation, both internationally and within the UK.

It sets out the legal position for parents wishing to relocate with their child outside of the UK and the approach of the courts since the 2011 case of K v K. It provides a practical step-by-step guide for practitioners on how best to approach international relocation cases, and how the rules and approach will differ when a parent wishes to restrict the primary carer from moving with their child within the UK.

After completing the course you will:
  • Be familiar with the legal framework governing a parent’s freedom to relocate with their child both within the UK and internationally;
  • Know what factors a court will take into account when deciding whether or not to grant leave to remove in international relocation cases;
  • Understand how the courts have approached international relocation in recent decisions and whether K v K has heralded the end for the Payne v Payne discipline?;
  • Understand the exceptional circumstances in which the court may interfere with a parent’s right to freely move internally within the UK with their child.
