Relocation in the area of family law refers to a situation in which a parent with primary care of a child seeks to relocate their dwelling, usually a considerable distance away ,making regular time for one of the parents with the child impracticable .This can occur within the same country or even internationally. Relocation situations frequently occur when a residential parent wishes to relocate for reasons such as a new work opportunity, improved living conditions, or proximity to family.


Relocation cases can be complicated as it can have a substantial impact on the child’s relationship with the non-residential parent. The non-residential parent may raise concerns about the child’s stability, the time to be spent with both parents and potential disturbance to the child’s life if the relocation is approved.


When deciding on relocation cases, Courts often consider several criteria, including the reasons for the transfer, the child’s best interests, the potential impact on the child’s relationship with both parents and any proposed arrangements for maintaining contact with the non-custodial parent.
