Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi I’m currently living in NZ from the UK we moved almost 5 years ago my son who is now 12yrs old was from a previous relationship his biological father has never met him. When we moved he signed to say my son can reside with me and my husband abroad but particularly NZ and when we went for residence in 2017 he signed again to say he is happy to exercise all parental rights and is happy for my son to reside abroad. We now want to move to Australia will we need new consent or is those 2 forms surfactant?

If the agreement says he agrees you can take the boy overseas on fairly general terms, then changing to Australia is unlikely to be an issue. If it is specific that he consents to Just New Zealand you may need to consider getting his consent to move to Australia
Customer
It says in exercise of my parental responsibility. I give my full and unreserved consent for my son s removal from UK jurisdiction to live abroad with myself and my husband. Generally and in particular New Zealand. That was all done in UK when we left! Then a year and half later when we went for residency he stated again that it was fine for our son to live abroad this time was stamped by New Zealand court so we have two statements! What’s your thoughts?
Many thanks

I think tell him you are moving to Australia because if he did want to get in contact it’s actually easier to get there from the UK than to here. So present it as keeping him informed rather than asking. Becauhe consented to him living abroad that should cover other countries
