Foundation releases major report into Relocation Disputes

Relocation disputes are widely regarded as one of the most controversial and difficult issues in family law internationally. The New Zealand Law Foundation funded a socio-legal research team from the University of Otago to undertake a three-year study on relocation following parental separation from 2007 to 2009. This research was the first conducted in New Zealand on relocation, and amongst the first world-wide to explore family members’ perspectives on this issue.
