Overseas Travel

Help where one parent wants to take a child or children overseas.

A parent may need the other parent’s consent to take or send their child overseas or may want to stop the travel from occurring.

If you intend to travel outside of Australia with the child/ren, there are a number of things you must consider including, specific travel plans, passports for the children, the time the child/ren will be out of the country, if the time spent will be conflicted with time spent with the other parent and importantly, that you might require the other parent’s consent.

Alternatively, you simply may not agree to the other parent taking the child/ren out of the country.

We can advise you on both the considerations necessary prior to arranging travel with the child/ren and also your available options and legal rights if you disagree with the travel arrangements for the child/ren.

How can we help you?

  • Negotiating with the other party
  • Advising on options available
  • Advice regarding applying for passport and parental consent
  • Preparing Consent Orders
  • Preparing your case for court if agreement cannot be reached
