Relocation - Legal Costs Could Be Shared I am willing to fight my 'ex' to the bitter end over relocation, as long as I know that if I win, the court will order costs in my favour. Will this be the case?
Not necessarily, because the court has discretion and the last word here. For example in May 2005 the Supreme Court finally put an end to a two year court battle between divorced parents, both of whom had remarried, over relocation of their mutual children. It re-instated the original Family Court's judgment allowing relocation, but held that both sides would bear their own costs, which covered two appeals, and specifically recommended that the District Court's ruling on costs be reversed.
