Hi thank you for your message, provided the father has not provided permission you will still need to go to court for an order approving the move. The best way to do this is to
apply to court for a specific issues order. A ‘specific issue order’ is used to look at a specific question about how the child is being brought up in this case to take them out of the country. Follow these steps to apply for a court order:
1) Read guidance CB001 on making an application: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/family-court-applications-that-involve-children-cb1
2) Fill in the C100 court form found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-c100-application-under-the-children-act-1989-for-a-child-arrangements-prohibited-steps-specific-issue-section-8-order-or-to-vary-or-discharge
3) Send the original form and 3 copies of it to the nearest court that deals with cases involving children, you can find the nearest court here: https://courttribunalfinder.service.gov.uk/search/
It costs £215 to apply for a court order. You may be able to get help with court fees if you’re on benefits or a low income and you can find out more here: https://www.gov.uk/get-help-with-court-fees

Hi thank you for your message, well you would not need to seek an order now then. If you were planning to move in say a a couple of months you would seek the order then. Maybe when you are 6 months from graduation make an application as you should get a hearing within a few weeks, earlier if it needs to be.
