CHILD ABDUCTION: Re H-K (Children) [2011] EWCA Civ 1100

(Court of Appeal, Ward, Longmore and Sullivan LJJ, 10 October 2011)

Where a family agreed to move to England for a year, the father's intention to return and the mother's agreement to return did not prevent a change in habitual residence from Australia to England. Permanence is not required; there will be habitual residence where residence is adopted for settled purposes as part of the regular order of a person's life for the time being.
