Relocation isn't straightforward. You may need a family law specialist to help you with relocation proceedings
Schumacher Law represents parents or caregivers who are looking to relocate with their children within New Zealand or internationally and also represents parents or caregivers who wish to keep their children where they are (to defend a relocation application).
With things like the internet and affordable travel, people from different locations have made far more connections. While this is positive in many respects, if the relationship ends there is often an instant desire for each person to return to their family for support. When there are children involved relocation is not straight forward.
For some people, it is not a desire to be with family which triggers relocation, but work issues. Difficulty obtaining employment, or progressing a career, can trigger the relocation issue for separated families.
If agreement cannot be reached, either of the parents may apply to the Court for the issue to be determined by a Judge. If relocation has become an issue for you and your family, talk with Schumacher Law
about your particular circumstances and what your options may be.
