Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Who moved away? Are there any court orders already in place?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
Do you have the agreement re travel in writing? Or have witnesses to the agreement?
If you have good evidence that this was the agreement it is very likely that the court will expect both parents to share the travel to handover the children.
You need to set out the information in your position statement when you go to court and provide halfway points for the handovers to occur - and an alternative in the event that one or other of you cannot travel that far (e.g. if unwell), such as the use of public transport or a trusted friend or relative. Putting things clearly in writing shows the court that you have considered the matter carefully and have alternatives available to you. What the court will order, however, always lies in what is in the best interests of the children.
Does that assist?
I hope that it goes well for you.
All the best.
