Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-How old are the children?
-From which area to which area do you propose to move?
-What are the arrangements for the father to see the children and are there any court orders reflecting this?
What have the arrangements been in the last year - eg. frequency and duration and has he kept to the arrangements?
Thanks for confirming. As he has parental responsibility and the move will likely impact the current informal arrangements, he has a right to be consulted regarding the move and can apply to court for a prohibited steps order. However, as the location is only 1 hour away, it would be in your interest when proposing the relocation to also propose reasonable provision for contact to take place on a regular basis.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
This is an order prohibiting you from doing something, in this case it will be relocation. Whether such an order will be granted depends on whether the relocation is in the best interests of the children.
