International relocation cases are widely regarded as some of the most complex and difficult matters to come before the Family Court. Harcourt has a depth of expertise in international relocation and for many clients we are their first port of call when such cases arise.
We recognise the stakes can be incredibly high for the families involved and there is a need for compassionate advice combined with a robust and strategic approach to proceedings from the outset. We advise and act both for parents and children, as either applicants or respondents at first instance and also on appeal.
Three of our members are co-authors of the leading textbook on relocation disputes, and publications by our barristers on relocation disputes are cited in leading cases such as: Re C (Older Children: Relocation)  2 FLR 1159 (para 59) and Re C-W  EWCA Civ 1272 (para 9).
