Yes. The remaining parent can make an objection to the relocation of his child to Israel.

If a parent applies to the local courts for permission to relocate, then the remaining parent can defend that application, based on the welfare of the child. However the principles used by Western courts to decide on relocation are similar to those used in Israel, and if the relocating parent’s proposals are legitimate and reasonable, there is a reasonable chance that permission to relocate will be given.

If the ‘relocating’ parent does not apply for prior permission from a local court, or does but is refused permission, and does actually remove the child, then the ‘relocating’ parent will have in fact abducted the child to Israel.

In this case, WHERE THE CHILD HAS BEEN MOVED TO ISRAEL WITHOUT THE OTHER PARENT'S CONSENT OR COURT PERMISSION, HE/SHE HAS BEEN ABDUCTED, and the rules for an abduction will apply.
 

Up to a point; if he does not agree, you can apply to relocate in the appropriate court in the country where you are living. Your 'ex' can object, but the court will have the power to overrule him, and grant you permission, if you meet the legal criteria.
Certainly not! This would be child abduction, clearly and simply.

The most important point is that relocation should be done lawfully according to the law of the country in which the child is then habitually resident. If the local law is not followed, then moving the child to Israel will be an unlawful abduction.

Most of the principles which apply to relocating a child FROM ISRAEL also apply to relocating a child TO ISRAEL. This is because most Western countries operate on similar principles of law concerning children’s rights.
