If one parent wishes to relocate outwith the United Kingdom with a child who is habitually resident in Scotland they require the consent of the other parent (if that parent has parental rights and responsibilities).
The law is clear on this. In Scotland, however, it is generally accepted that you also ought to have consent to take the child outwith the country too.
In circumstances where consent is withheld a court action seeking a Specific issue order requires to be raised.
Often obtaining a decision may be time sensitive, if for example the parent who is seeking to relocate has a job offer.
We have experience in dealing with these types of cases efficiently and effectively.
