Our family law team were recently successful in a Judgement by one of the Federal Circuit Court Judges to enable our client to move interstate with the children.  In this matter we represented a mother who was seeking to move from the Sydney area to rural Victoria with the two children.  The father, who was legally represented, opposed the application for our client to move away and unfortunately the matter required a hearing before the Judge to determine if our client would be granted permission to move or if she would be required to maintain the children’s residence in the Sydney area.

Our Family Law Team led by accredited specialist Cassandra Youssef were able to successfully argue before the Judge and include an expert witness that the move was in the best interests of the children and that our client should be granted permission for the children’s residence to be changed to regional Victoria.

In delivering the Judgement the Judge made findings and delivered reasons that set out a favourable outcome for our client.  Our client was obviously extremely happy with the outcome and has now successfully relocated to a country town with the children who we are advised have settled in well.

The Judge made orders for the father to have regular contact with the children on set days and during holiday periods.
