If the child is to leave New Zealand you will need a parenting agreement which records that she is leaving with the consent of the party who is staying. However if you cannot agree that she leaves, then you would need a Family Court order permitting her to go with you

Customer
Hi Both parents and the child will be leaving New Zealand, is there any representation that she can get that allows her to choose which parents she wants to go with, and confirming that she was not coerced into that decision
