LEAVE TO REMOVE: Re F (Leave to Remove) [2005] EWHC 2705 (Fam)

(Family Division; Mr Jeremy Richardson QC; 30 September 2005) [2006] 1 FLR 776

The mother was refused leave to remove the child from the jurisdiction. The mother's plans to move to Jamaica with the maternal grandfather were genuine, but ill-conceived. The mother's plans to support herself and the child were wildly speculative, the research into schools had been poor, and the school identified unsuitable because neither parent could afford it. There were insufficient funds to provide for regular airfares for contact visits, and the mother's hostility to the father might make contact difficult. As Jamaica was a non-Convention country, the father might have difficulties enforcing any order for contact made. There would be no benefit to the child in relocating, and the close bond with his father would be severed. If the mother remained in the jurisdiction her life would not be unduly thwarted.
