What if I want to move away?

Moving away can be a stressful and exhausting process at the best of times, let alone when you are in the middle of family law dispute or already have parenting orders in place.

Whether you are considering moving away for work or personal reasons, our lawyers can help you make the relocation process as easy and as smooth as possible.

If you do already have a parenting arrangement and/or Court Orders in place, you should not move away without first seeking legal advice, otherwise you may risk escalating your family law matter or contravening Court Orders.

There are many avenues to explore when reaching an agreement with your former partner about relocation, these include negotiation, mediation, collaboration and an/or application to the court. At FGD we are very passionate about collaborative law and we are always happy to talk to you about how this out of court option could work for you and your former partner.
