A report about a relocation case described as 'not just exceptional, but very exceptional' is found in the Times . The mother of two boys of 11 & 16 was allowed to take them to live with her in France in 2005. But the boys could not settle there and after a holiday back in the UK with their father refused to return. Thorpe LJ (yes, really) has allowed them their wish to stay in Britain with their father. The case is not yet reported. For an article on relocation cases featuring the life & times of Thorpe Lj see my article I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane, Don't Know When I'll Be Back Again: Can I Take the Children with me? on the main Family Law Week website.

There are many instances when children do not feel comfortable in adjusting themselves in new surroundings and they choose to return back to the previous destination. One must be able to handle their fears and foes related to the altogether different society with patience, and both the parents should be able to understand child's psychology, in order to help them to make adjustments.
