Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a UK barrister, I can provide some advice on this matter. The mother would not normally be able to take the child out of the UK without either the agreement of the father or an order of the court in absence of agreement. In assessing what is in the best interests of the child the court would look at parenting capability, ability to provide financially, stability of circumstances, the wishes and/or needs of the child, amongst other things. From your question, it appears that the father has a good relationship with his son and that his son is settled in his environment, which is obviously important given his additional needs.
Hello, was there anything further I can assist with please? I'd also really appreciate you taking a minute to accept my reply and rate 5 stars so I can be credited for answering your question. All follow up questions on this thread can then be free of charge. Kind regards, Peter
