Dear Sheila, thank you for your question. You would need to seek the father's consent to take your daughter to Australia with you. If his consent is unreasonably withheld then you would need to submit an application to Court for a Specific Issue Order. The Court will look at all the facts of the matter and decide if it is in your daughter's best interests to emigrate to Australia with you.
Hi Shelley, Hope this information was of assistance. Have you managed to progress matters? Please let me know if you have any further queries. Regards
