Relocation matters are challenging for both the courts and practitioners to manage and resolve. This course provides a step by step overview of the application process for practitioners.

This course provides guidance for practitioners on drafting relocation applications, and responding to applications served on their clients. The course also discusses:

  • The process for making (or responding to) relocation applications;
  • The relevant considerations under the governing legislation;
  • How best to draft supporting affidavits and written submissions;
  • What types of evidence to obtain in support of an application (or response); and
  • How best to present the evidence to the court.

This course has been updated to reflect the changes to the legislation, rules and practice directions effected on 1 September 2021 when the Federal Circuit and Family Courts merged to form the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia.
