Hi, thanks for your question. Have you discussed these proposed arrangements for your daughtwith your husband?
Thanks for confirming. As you will both have parental responsibility his consent must be sought before you move to Poland. If he does not agree to the move then you would need to make an application to court under form C100 and a £215 court fee to your local family court to decide whether your daughter should move with you to Poland. Prior to this, if no agreement is reached directly with him you will need to make a referral to an independent family mediator to attempt to settle the matter before being able to proceed to court - you can find local mediators here: familymediationcouncil.org.uk. There will be a variety of factors that the court considers, such as her stability in the UK. her relationship with both of you, any extended family in the UK and Poland and how her quality of life will be. The court will also take into account the following criteria when making a decision:
1.The wishes and feelings of the child concerned2. The child’s physical, emotional and educational needs3. The likely effect on the child if circumstances changed as a result of the courts decision4. The child’s age, sex, backgrounds and any other characteristics which will be relevant to the court’s decision5. Any harm the child has suffered or may be at risk of suffering6. Capability of the child’s parents (or any other person the courts find relevant) at meeting the child’s needs7.
