The Realities of Relocation: Disputes of Post-Separation Migration
This is a three-year project looking at disputes arising between separated parents when one of them proposes to move with their child(ren) to a new geographic location and the other parent objects to the move.
The current debate, in both the English courts and abroad, is limited by the small number of reported decisions, almost all from the Court of Appeal. To further inform this debate, Dr Rob George is looking at relocation cases which do not go to appeal. He has collected judgments from trial courts over a 12-month period and obtained the views of legal practitioners via a questionnaire. Now he is conducting qualitative interviews with 30 parents (15 mothers, 15 fathers) involved in litigation about relocation.
