Australia - The Italian Sisters

Kara Best & Melita Herbert

On 7 August 2012, the High Court of Australia considered argument relevant to the question of whether the four Italian Sisters at the heart of an international custody dispute should have been afforded independent legal representation in the context of Hague Convention proceedings requiring their return to Italy.

Their Australian mother had earlier appealed the determination of a single judge of the Family Court of Australia (Forrest J) requiring the return of the girls, aged 15, 14, 10 and 9 to Italy. The judge found that they had been wrongfully removed from that jurisdiction by their mother, now some two years ago.
