‘Sometimes the distance involved in relocating a child within the UK is just as significant as relocating to the north of Europe,’ says Worwood.
The Court of Appeal had a similar view in a recent case, where Worwood represented a father in London who wanted to stop the mother moving to Cumbria with the child. Although higher courts would normally only hear relocation cases with an international element, the relocation was stopped and the father was given a residence order on the grounds that both internal and international movements are equally significant.
Known by peers for her work on children’s cases, she also advises HNWs on complex financial structures. After focusing on finance and children cases at a Chelmsford law firm, she moved to Manches’
London office (prior to the Penningtons-Manches merger) in 2001, and became a partner in 2005. The skilled solicitor is also the president of the International Association of Young Lawyers and has recently written and edited books for both lawyers and parents on international relocation.
