Federal Magistrates Court case- relocating grandparents

In the recent Federal Magistrates Court case of Richards and Howard, the court had to consider what principles applied when children were in the care of their grandparents, the latter making an application to the court for urgent orders allowing them to move from the Canberra area to central Queensland.

There were circumstances of urgency in the move, as one of the sons of the grandparents was about to undergo brain surgery.

Federal Magistrate Neville held that the same principles that apply to relocation cases involving parents also applied in this case to grandparents, and allowed the move.
