The purpose of this short paper is not to be a discursive essay on international child relocation.  The extensive case law emanating from the Family Court of Australia, the Full Court of the Family Court and the High Court of Australia since 1999 clearly sets out the law and the mandated approach trial judges are required to take. The purpose of this paper is rather to summarise the approach to be taken and in that context to highlight the considerations that practitioners need to focus on in case preparation.
