My wife has applied for permission to raise our child abroad. The clinical psychologist has made a report recommending emigration and I think the judge will accept her findings. What can I do ?

Firstly, it is possible to ask for permission to cross examine the professional who submitted the report and attempt to show that the findings were based on mistaken conclusions or poor exercise of discretion in an attempt to persuade the court not to accept the recommendations. Secondly, if this fails, and the court does accept the recommendations of the report, it is possible to appeal against the successful emigration plea and immediately ask for a delay in the implementation of the judgment – i.e. a delay in cancelling any temporary orders preventing the child’s exit from Israel – pending the results of the appeal.
