‘the best law remains simple law'

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


The concept of habitual residence lies at the heart of international family law. 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.
