A divorced parent in England may be able to enforce a child maintenance order or petition for a new maintenance decision even if the paying parent moves abroad. A number of different countries have signed agreements with the United Kingdom to enforce child maintenance decisions. Countries who are signatories to these agreements are referred to as "REMO countries".
A parent who would like to enforce a child maintenance order after the paying parent moves to another European Union country should complete a REMO 7 form. A REMO 8 form should be completed if a parent wishes to apply for a new child maintenance decision against a parent living in a different European Union country. These forms can be delivered to a local family court or mailed directly to the REMO Unit.
