Need advice on relocation From S.A To W.A

Add Topic
Hi i have consent orders that where made in 2007 my daughter lives with her father in S.A. Over the last two holidays i have had my little girl (she is eight and a half) she has started to tell me that she wants to live with me in W.A. I work from home and i have  been here for three years. I am considering changeing the orders and i have  spoke to my ex about it he is not agrreable and says that i can only have her live with me when he thinks i am good enough to have her. Which i would say is never. He was possesive and viloent and he still makes it quiet hard to maintain my realtionship with my daughter even after he got what he wanted. Anyway she is voicing her what she wants oh she would also like us to get along i try that but her dad is still so angry with me. (I left him because he hurt me) as her mother what should i do I love her so much but i really do not want to have to fight for the right to have my daughter live with me. As to mature adults we should be able to work this out our selves. As i have her for holidays already why can my ex not do the same too. What makes it harder for him to let her go. Hell i gave birth to her carried her for nine months in my own body. How close can you get.

I would not think about this as courts suck big time and i somtimes do wonder if it is in the best interest of the child they have. But my little girl is asking for it to happen she wants to live with me in W.A she understands that she will start at a new school and have new friends i have said this to her but she says i know that i want to be with you mummy. Is it worth my time and money to go through the whole lot again. I have tried for mediation to see if we can change things a bit but my ex wants know changes. My orders where made four years ago and my life has changed a hell of a lot since they where made and my daughter wants change too. Any advice on what i should do?

At Eight and a Half the Courts will not take much notice of your daughter.

You should read through the 'Rice and Asplund' forums and search under 'Change of Circumstances'. Consent orders have the same legal weight as those made by Judicial Officers and the Court needs to hear very 'compelling' reasons why they need to be changed
