    DescriptionRelocation cases are disputes between separated parents which arise when one parent proposes to move to a new geographic location with their child and the other parent objects to the proposal. Relocation disputes are widely recognised as being amongst the most difficult cases facing family courts, and the law governing them is increasingly a cause for debate at both national and international levels. In Relocation Disputes: Law and Practice in England and New Zealand, Rob George looks at the different ways in which the legal systems of England and New Zealand currently deal with relocation cases. Drawing on case law, literature and the views of legal practitioners in the two jurisdictions, Relocation Disputes represents a major contribution to our understanding of the everyday practice of relocation cases. The empirical data reported in this book reveal the practical differences between the English and New Zealand approaches to relocation, along with a detailed analysis of the pros and cons of each system as seen by judges, lawyers and court experts who deal with these cases in practice. This analysis leads to detailed criticisms and lessons that can be learnt, together with practical suggestions about possible reforms of relocation law.

    Review quote
    ENDORSEMENTS The exceptionally valuable study published in this book makes more widely available much of what [Dr George] has so far accomplished. The research that he has done amidst the practitioners of England and New Zealand is particularly relevant...We are fortunate in having in our midst a young scholar who has chosen to devote his talent to a highly specialised but highly important topic From the Foreword by The Rt Hon Lord Justice Thorpe, Court of Appeal, England and Wales Dr Rob George has written the definitive work on the state of relocation cases in England and New Zealand. The divergence in judicial approach is beautifully analysed through both case law and empirical interviews. This book is essential reading for understanding the complexities of relocation cases Professor Mark Henaghan, Dean of the Law School, University of Otago, New Zealand Dr George holds up a mirror to what we do in relocation cases, and draws a map of where we might want to go. More than that, we see how lawyers and judges think about hard decisions, and how studies of this kind can help us think more clearly The Hon Mr Justice Peter Jackson, Family Division of the High Court of England and Wales
