Summary of Facts: a decision was made in the Federal Circuit Court for the relocation of the children at the first court date, appeal was lodged for the interim decision, application to the court for a stay of the orders in the interim
The mother relocated to the Gold Coast with two children from overseas. The father then came to Australia to retrieve the children and was residing near Sydney. An application was brought to the court for the children to relocate overseas and reside near Sydney until then.
At the first court date, an interim decision was made that the children were to be relocated to New South Wales, pending the decision about whether they return overseas. The children would live with the father unless the mother could move there also and then would live them both.
The mother appealed this decision and applied for an application for a stay of the interim orders meaning that the interim orders wouldn't continue until the appeal was heard. While the appeal was waiting to be heard, the court heard the application whether the children should remain living in the Gold Coast until the appeal would be heard.
