Relocating my Child Interstate or Internationally – What the Family Law in Australia says about relocation

Man and Child

Woman and Child

Couple and Cat

While a Family Court cannot interfere with a parent’s right to move freely, they do have the power to say when and if a child can be relocated with the parent.

SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, July 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Following separation, it is not uncommon for one party of the relationship to want to pack up and relocate. There are many reasons that lead to a parent wanting to relocate interstate or even internationally, whether it be because of their job, a subsequent relationship, or a need for financial or emotional support.

While a Family Court cannot interfere with a parent’s right to move freely, they do have the power to say when and if a child can be relocated with the parent.

Recently, Unified Lawyers were successful in acting for the father of a child, who was opposing the mother’s Application to relocate the child of the relationship from Sydney to Melbourne.

In our case, the mother sought to relocate the child to Melbourne, during the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to allow her the opportunity to move in with her subsequent partner.

While there are no specific provisions in the Act stating that a parent cannot relocate with their child, without consent of the other parent, there is a presumption that both parents will have equal shared parental responsibility.

Therefore, it is presumed that both parents will share in determining any major long-term decisions for the child, such as the relocation of a child interstate or internationally.

Similar to any other parenting matter, when considering a relocation case, the Court must consider the best interests of the child as its primary consideration.

It is important to note that in determining what is in a child’s best interest, the Court will always have significant regard to the benefit the child would gain from having a meaningful relationship with both of their parents.

Accordingly, they will consider what impact the decision to relocate a child interstate or internationally is going to have on the practicality of a child maintaining their relationship with the other parent.

It was said in the leading case of Morgan v Miles [2007] FamCA 1230 [80] that:
“the child’s best interests must be weighed and balanced with the ‘right’ of the proposed relocating parent’s freedom of movement.”

Succeeding in our case, the Court accepted our submissions that the child had maintained a significant relationship with the Father since their birth and that the relocation to Melbourne would hinder this relationship and therefore cause detriment to the child.

Accordingly, while the mother had the right to relocate to be with her partner, the child’s best interest was best served living with the father and spending time with the mother once a month.

In determining what Orders to make for the child to spend time with the mother, the Court had to make reference to the current Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions in order to consider what was the best arrangement.

Given these times are unprecedented and the health guidelines and travel restrictions are constantly changing, it is important to make sure you put the strongest case forward on how any relocation is in the best interests of the children. In this current climate, this would be a high threshold to pass.

If you are, or your ex-partner is considering relocating interstate or internationally with the children of the relationship, make you sure you speak to a family law solicitor about your rights and how the Court approaches relocation matters.

Our family law team at Unified Lawyers are experienced in relocation Applications and can give you advice as to the likely prospects of success of any Application.

You can contact our friendly team of family lawyers on 1300 667 461 for your free case evaluation today.

LONDON, UK, July 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Parenting website Yet Another Mummy Blog has launched a post discussing the weirdest Google searches ever made by parents.

Parents are in a constant state of worry and confusion, which has led to some incredible Google searches. Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of a parent’s brain. The blog post compiles submissions from parents, as well as recorded Google searches.

“I had the idea for this blog post when I caught myself in the middle of a particularly weird Google search. I had just typed in ‘Why does my toddler always sniff loudly instead of saying the number “eight”, and I realised I’d gone a bit mad. But it did get me to thinking that other parents had probably researched equally baffling things. ”

— Samantha Lyon, Founder, Yet Another Mummy Blog

Weird Google Searches Parents Have Made

My baby weed in his own eye, will he go blind?
Can I die from sleep deprivation?
Is it normal for a baby to growl?
Can I give my toddler sleepy time tea?
Why does my child get worms all the time?
Why does my child look like my brother?

Luigi Matarazzo explains how M&A is tackling financial ignorance through accelerated education

Mata&Associates Financial Consultants

Mata&Associates Financial Consultants

Luigi Matarazzo, CEO and Founder

Luigi Matarazzo, CEO and Founder

The CEO and Founder of M&A International Consulting, Luigi Matarazzo, shows how financial literacy can be attainable for everyone

Investing is easy. You don't need a Nobel Prize to do it. The hard part is dealing with your mind, and you need to be very aware of how your decision-making process will interfere with your strategy. ”

— Luigi Matarazzo, CEO and Founder

DUBLIN, IRELAND, July 9, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — One might expect that developed countries have a financially literate population, but that is not always the case. By developed, we mean countries that are members of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) which are regarded as having high-income economies; some of those countries are the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and many countries in Western and Eastern Europe. Although financial literacy is strongest in countries with developed and advanced economies there still is a lot of ignorance around the subject of money and many people are reluctant to talk about it or have not formed the habit of talking about their finances.

The financial literacy gap can be clearly seen in Europe with Northern countries scoring higher as financial literacy rates in Scandinavian countries are 71% and higher while at the same time the Eastern European countries and countries situated in the South such as Italy are scoring below 40%. This disparity in financial literacy in Europe is one of the largest seen in the world.

But what is financial literacy and why is it important?

Financial literacy is the ability to make correct financial decisions in personal finance with desirable outcomes. It is also the ability to fully comprehend the concepts of saving and borrowing money, what liabilities are and how to limit them, the concept of budgeting, goal setting, saving to build assets and having a diversified financial plan. These skills are important in everyday life, they can help you make decisions regarding student loans, using debt to buy a car, create a savings account, how to invest your money in the stock market and help you define how much money you need to retire. Despite being such an important factor for a person’s development and success in life, money and finances are not taught in school.

The need for financial literacy

Creating awareness around financial responsibility is important and can alleviate any insecurity surrounding the subject of money as many people tend to evade talking about it. Money has always been considered a taboo subject and there are many emotions surrounding money that are at times hard to deal with and uncomfortable. Many people feel hopeless, frustrated or angry and these are all emotions that can stem from bad money management.
The founder and CEO of M&A International Consulting, Luigi Matarazzo believes that if you deal with the emotions surrounding money you can successfully master scary concepts such as investing and saving money: "Investing is easy. Really, you don't need a Nobel Prize or some sort of high-level degree to do a good job in the markets. You need goals, a consolidated strategy and time to make it work. The hard part is dealing with your mind, and you need to be very aware of how your decision-making process will interfere with your strategy. We teach all of that in our programs."

Providing the education and the tools to help people efficiently deal with and understand finances and money is vital for creating financial literacy for individuals but also the communities they live in. Financial literacy rates are the lowest among women, young people, minorities, low-income individuals and people that are less educated.

Education on the subject can help increase these levels but there are also behavioral aspects to consider. Money management is a learned behavior that is why it is important to start educating and forming healthy money habits from an early age in order to establish a positive outlook towards finances and money. However, it is never too late to gain financial knowledge and build healthy saving and investing habits.

Luigi Matarazzo adamantly believes that through consultancy services, group coaching and individual coaching one can successfully learn how to turn their savings into long term investments through tailor-made strategies that are accessible: "Classic education and parenting failed and are failing at providing basic money management and personal finance skills to young students. The majority of people grow up without any knowledge on how to save or handle money, or how to reach a better future with proper management and investing. We are providing all those tools, and our clients are finally more empowered with their personal finances than they had ever been."

M&A International Consulting, is located in Dublin and provides online financial education and consulting services to savers and novice investors throughout Europe and particularly Italy.

The consulting firm’s ultimate mission is to reduce the gap in financial literacy between Italy and other European countries with considerably higher rates, especially Northern Scandinavian countries. They aim to increase financial literacy by providing consultancy services and financial coaching to empower people to manage their money more effectively and help them overcome any money phobias by offering tailor-made strategies for long-term investments in the markets.

M&A International Consulting has recently grown and started reaching customers internationally thus expanding from their initial focus that was the Italian market. Also during the coronavirus pandemic, the firm has maintained profitability, as their team is fully digital and works completely online. They also have a healthy core business model that attains high margins with low maintenance costs.

Suicide in the Time of COVID-19

Media campaigns around the world remind people that social distancing equals physical distancing, not emotional distancing.

While suicide rates haven’t been recorded in prior pandemic-related lockdowns throughout history, experts know that social isolation is related to suicide.”

— Dr. Linda Miles

UNITED STATES, July 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — We are undergoing a once-in-a-century (for most of us, a once-in-a-lifetime) pandemic, an international health crisis that has caused unprecedented fear and pain for many people and nations, has upended our norms, and is restructuring our current reality. In such uncertain times, it’s imperative to listen to the experts and follow their instructions to ensure that we emerge safe, healthy, and alive—with our loved ones just as intact. Above all, it’s important to face uncertainty and fear with the only thing that is guaranteed to make today and tomorrow better: loving-kindness toward ourselves, our loved ones, and society as a whole.

This article on Suicide shares the expert insight of mental health professional Dr. Linda Miles, with content drawn from an interview conducted by Francine Bianco Tax. Dr. Miles worked as Director of Crisis Programs in Community Mental Health and has worked as psychotherapist for over 35 years.

National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255

How do you find help if you’re suicidal?
Or perhaps someone you know—a family member, friend, neighbor, or person in your community—has suicidal tendencies. COVID-19, an unconventional virus that has caused unconventional challenges for getting help. There are many resources online. As rates of infection and death increase, so do the mental health toll.
Media campaigns around the world remind people that social distancing equals physical distancing, not emotional distancing. The message is: we’re all in this together, even though we are apart. There are many for whom this imposed isolation is scary, depressing, or lonely.
While suicide rates haven’t been recorded in prior pandemic-related lockdowns throughout history, experts know that social isolation is related to suicide. Those most vulnerable, they warn, include people who have a history of self-destructive distress.[1] Isolation is one of the many triggers. Due to COVID-19, many people are suddenly unemployed or uncertain of their job security, struggle to make ends meet, and feel disconnected from their usual support systems.

· SAMHSA’s Suicide Prevention Resource Center
SAMHSA’s SPRC provides accurate data, up-to-date research, and knowledge of effective strategies and interventions that are essential to our ability to prevent suicide. Find programs, toolkits, fact sheets, and other resources to help you take effective action.

· National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention
The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance) is the nation’s public-private partnership for suicide prevention. The Action Alliance works with more than 250 national partners to advance the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention.

Here are a few practices to cope with Covid challenges:
· Connect with nature. Nature soothes, restores, and connects us to ourselves and to the world at large.

· Get moving. Moving changes the chemistry of the body, including the mind. It can be as successful as medication when it comes to alleviating anxiety and depression.

· Be mindful. Mindfulness minimizes anxiety and boosts happiness, helping to develop compassion, curiosity, empathy, focus, and clarity. There are many ways to be mindful, but often it comes to slowing down, focusing on your breathing and inner self, cultivating gratitude, and noticing what makes life worth living.

· Connect with others. Feeling lonely is as detrimental to your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Go for a walk with a friend who lives nearby, even if it means having to walk on opposite ends of the street. Even if you can’t physically be with your loved ones, you can always connect through the phone or online. If you need help, don’t hesitate to reach out. Suicide prevention lines are available 24/7. Contact a friend, therapist, church or community counselor, or online professional to gain support.

Spacetime is doomed”

— Nima Arkani-Hamed

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every day we find ourselves living in a whole new world, not sure which way is up and which way is down.

United Way and Sharpen Partner to Unveil FREE Family Mental Health Management Mobile App in Response to COVID-19

Sharpen Family fosters love, hope, and healing for families during the pandemic

This app is a game-changer for any parent interested in improving their own mental health or the mental health and wellbeing of their children.”

— Paige Stephenson, President & CEO of United Way of the Piedmont

SPARTANBURG, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Created in collaboration with the United Way of the Piedmont and more than 15 agencies specializing in child advocacy and childhood development, Sharpen unveiled a mobile app of resources for South Carolina families today. The FREE app helps individuals and families cope with anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges, and is especially effective for foster parents and parents of young children.

Immediately available by visiting the United Way website or this link , Sharpen Family provides a vast library of more than 400 educational modules on mental health topics and supports families through COVID-19 and beyond. Unique to Sharpen, the content is offered in the voices and perspectives of real families. The app offers self-help information, techniques, and guidance in a safe and discreet environment.

“We initially began working with our community partners to provide foster care resources to our families through the Sharpen Family branded app,” said Paige Stephenson, President & CEO of United Way of the Piedmont. “This app is a game-changer for any parent interested in improving their own mental health or the mental health and wellbeing of their children.”

Internet Online Child Protection of Paramount Importance

Two international authors working together for the online safety and protection of children globally

Two Authors On A Mission

Theory of Digital Supervision Required For Online Protection Of Children

Adults (parents and caregivers) have to take full ownership for the activities of our children online.”

— Charlene Doak-Gebauer

LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Our children are the worst collateral damage of the COVID 19 pandemic. Not only can they become victim of the virus, children are alone in their homes, without going to school and in isolation. Most are migrating to online environments to help them endure the lack of peer involvement in their lives. Unfortunately, predators know this, and have made available a handbook for successful luring of children online, which causes a disturbing increase in the vulnerability of our children.

Two authors, Charlene Doak-Gebauer and Holly Dowling, have decided to coordinate their efforts and help our children and families overcome such a negative challenge. Charlene is a former secondary school educator, certified as a computer specialist in education and has been a network administrator in high schools. Through her experience, Charlene realized a great need and has created a user-friendly Theory of Digital Supervision for online child protection. "Adults (parents and caregivers) have to take full ownership for the activities of our children online. No more should we entrust governments, police, Internet service providers, social media, and others for the safety of our children online," cautions Doak-Gebauer. "We need to digitize our parenting skills and practice Digital Supervision".

Charlene recognized that Holly Dowling has written a book that is of inspiration to parents, and parents could transmit the inspirational sayings to their children for their benefit. Dowling explained, "So many families are suffering and their children stressed because of COVID but also because of a lack of social life due to isolation and school being stopped. We cannot forget our children in all of this."

Doak-Gebauer is Founder and Chair of two organizations – the charity Internet Sense First, and the AICET Council – Anti Internet Child Exploitation Team. AICET is a team of speakers dedicated to sharing their specialties related to Doak-Gebauer's Theory of Digital Supervision. Charlene's most recent book release "The Internet: Are Children In Charge?" contains details about Digital Supervision and also includes interviews, one with a criminal lawyer who has defended predators, another with an Internet child exploitation victim, and others. "Most people say my book is an easy read and very helpful. One father asked for six other copies so that he could share them with the parents of his children's friends. He wants all parents on the same page for online child protection when his children are in different homes.", explained Doak-Gebauer.

Dowling is a dynamic, Global Keynote Speaker & Inspirational Thought Leader. She is Founder and Leader of "Extraordinary Pivot: Turning Chaos Into Calm", focusing on personal and family mental wellbeing – separating professional life from home life for mental health. Her book “Hollyisms” can assist anyone seeking a sense of emotional balance. Dowling came to the realization that "our children need us more now than ever before in the history of the world. They are so vulnerable online. Charlene is a dear friend and I have learned so much, to the extent that I wanted to be involved in helping families."

Both authors advise their books can be purchased separately, but together, they are a powerful force for the health of families. They both emphasize that we cannot forget our children in this vulnerable time. Predators have not, nor can we.

This two-member team effort is exemplary and one that cannot be ignored. Predation has always been in isolation and did not need COVID to be in that space – it is a multi-billion-dollar industry that is exploiting our children to a degree that most do not realize. Doak-Gebauer explains, "Not only are unknowns causing issues, but peer victimizers as well. They are working insidiously bullying children, working in groups online, and causing terrible emotional hardship. At least in schools, educators might witness some of the bullying behaviors and be able to end it, but not online. With my theory of Digital Supervision, we CAN make a difference for our children."

Holly and Charlene encourage all families to take the time to read their books, for the sake of all children. As they have both explained, “will you know if your child is a bully or a victim? Through Digital Supervision you will know. Through Hollyisms, you will be able to help your child and yourself emotionally.”

Both books are available on Amazon and have been selling worldwide. Join the many people who have benefited from applying Digital Supervision parenting, and supporting their families emotionally.

Miss Olive’s Second Adventure is Now Available

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — MediaVista Public Relations


Miss Olive’s Second Adventure is Now Available

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, the second installment in the Miss Olive children’s book trilogy The Doggy Diva Diaries, continues the rescue dog’s adventures with the adored pup celebrating her birthday and finding loving, supportive “furever” friends in the process.

Written by Susan Marie and Miss Olive, and Illustrated by Rebekah Phillips and Kim Ranson, the story has Miss Olive learning that when faced with bullying, her superpower is kindness, and that it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside. It’s the kindness and love you have on the inside that counts. Recommended for ages four through nine, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, with its anti-bullying message, shows children that making an effort to be kind is how to make lasting friendships.

“Children relate to this story because sometimes it’s hard to make friends,” said author Susan Marie. “We’ve all had that experience growing up when we were in a new environment and someone made us feel left out. Through Miss Olive, kids learn that bullying is not okay and, also, a little kindness goes a long way in our path to making cherished forever friends.”

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends continues the story of a little Italian Greyhound with three legs who is adopted by a loving family in the award-winning first book in the series, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home. In Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends, Miss Olive learns that it’s her birthday and that her parents have planned a special celebration which will include treats, presents and friends. Her party is nearly ruined when she runs into a couple of grouchy dogs at the park who proceed to bully the poor pup. She realizes that true friends will stick by her and won’t join in with taunts from bullies. Miss Olive is thrilled to discover that she not only has a “furever” home, but she has “furever” friends as well.

The first book in the Miss Olive series, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home, won the DWAA Maxwell Medallion for 2018 Children’s Book of the Year from The Dog Writers Association of America. The book was also awarded the Bronze 2019 Moonbeam Children's Book Award in the Animals/Pets Fiction category. The award is an honor that “identifies the best children’s books published every year in the North American market.” In addition, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home received top honors from the National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA).

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Friends and Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home are available on BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com.
