International Relocation

Harcourt Chambers has a special expertise in international relocation cases, advising and acting for both applicants and respondents at first instance and on appeal. Three members of Chambers are co-authors of the leading textbook on relocation disputes, and publications by Harcourt Barristers on relocation disputes are cited in leading cases such as Re C (Older Children: Relocation) [2016] 2 FLR 1159 (para 59) and Re C-W [2015] EWCA Civ 1272 (para 9). Barristers at Harcourt Chambers are the go-to experts on relocation, and we advise and act for parents and children in these complex cases on a regular basis.
