Wilson LJ in Re P-J (Abduction: Habitual Residence: Consent)

Practitioners involved in children disputes with issues of jurisdiction need first to consider where the child concerned is habitually resident; in cases involving the abduction of a child they need to consider where the child was habitually resident before the abduction took place.
