Looking for help with leave to remove in London?

As one of the leading lawyers in the field of leave to remove London cases, we are perfectly placed to help you with your case.

With many years of both personal and professional expertise in dealing with child relocation cases there really is no-one else you should entrust your case with.

Here at Gregorian Emerson Family Law Solicitors we have extensive experience in all areas of child and family law, including advising on your individual leave to remove application and how to challenge these in court.  We use our own unique legal and psychological approach to your case, this combines our legal expertise along with psychological understanding, to maximise your chances of a successful outcome, whether that be in reaching agreements, mediation, or litigation and supporting you throughout the process.

In todays multi-cultural society we are seeing more and more families with parents from differing international backgrounds and it is now quite common to see children with parents from differing countries of origin.  However when these relationships break down we often see a situation where one parent wishes to relocate oversees, taking the children with them.  If consent is not forthcoming from the other parent agreeing to this move then an application will need to be made to the court for leave to remove the children from the country.

There can be many reasons for a parent wishing to relocate abroad - these include: returning to their homeland for family support (either emotional or financial): a new job in a country able to enhance your career: a new start, or a new relationship.  

These cases need to be well constructed from the outset.  Any parent intending to make an application must prepare a detailed plan in support of their proposed move providing practical arrangements, including accommodation, schooling and employment as well as setting out their commitment to support and facilitate the relationship between the children and the respondent after relocation.  They need to demonstrate that it has been thoroughly researched and planned, with details surrounding schools and availability of places etc.  You will also be required to show, in depth, how contact will still be maintained between the children and the left behind parent - this includes not just telephone or video calling (especially where there is a time difference to contend with), but also overnight trips (subject to distance) or holiday times etc, including who will be paying for these - if YOU are the one moving away can the other parent afford to visit, where will they stay, are your childen old enough to travel alone?  Many people do not factor this into their plan and this is where experienced legal counsel can make all the difference to your case.  We can help you whether you wish to apply for, or oppose, a leave to remove london case.  We will always be honest with you and advise you of your options, even if it may not be what you wish to hear.

The courts will always put the welfare of the children before any parental needs or wishes and therefore persuading the family court that your proposals or reasons for opposing a leave to removal application are genuine, without malice and in the best interests of the child or children can be key to winning the case.  We have personal as well as professional experience of successful leave to remove litigation so really are best placed to help you with your own personal leave to remove London case.  Prior to establishing Gregorian Emerson Family Law Solicitors,  Richard Gregorian was a partner in an international banking practice in the City of London.  Against all the legal advice he received, he utilised the joint legal and psychological approach which underpins this firm to ensure a successful resolution of his litigation which has had long-term benefits for the entire family.  He treats every client, whether opposing or applying for relocation as if acting in the best interests of his own children and his track record of success speaks for itself.

With the stakes being so high for you and your children in leave to remove litigation, it could be significantly detrimental to your case if you do not seek out professional opinion and expertise in this area.  We are yet to see a relocation case run by another law firm which has been properly formulated beyond the simplistic route of fact regurgitation and blame. We have been successful in achieving early agreement in leave to remove proceedings and maximising cases where previous legal advisers have failed to employ a proper strategic approach to the case or failed to present the case in the most efficient way.  Because we are able to facilitate a more constructive dialogue between the parents and highlight the underlying issues, we are able to facilitate early resolution of relocation cases through agreement.  Our testimonials speak for themselves.
