The greatest fear of a parent is that, if the other parent is permitted to relocate to another country, that the parent staying behind will not have the court-ordered visitation. One remedy a parent has if the other parent is permitted to relocate outside of the country is to request that the Court order the other parent to post a bond before the actual relocation occurs. The bond functions as an economic safeguard should the other parent seek to modify the child custody order in the other country's courts. If the parent attempted such a modification, the bond would be forfeited that could then be used to defend the matter in the foreign venue. Please do not let the other parent relocate to another country without consulting an expert like Covina attorney, Paul Eads.
