In re L (A Child) (Recognition of Foreign Order) – WLR Daily

In re  L (A Child) (Recognition of Foreign Order): [2012] EWCA Civ 1157;   [2012] WLR (D)  252

“The English court would not refuse recognition of a parental agreement freely reached in a member state of the European Union unless a party seeking to challenge it showed a very high degree of procedure or principle error which led to the conclusion and ratification of the agreement in the country where the child was habitually resident at the time of the agreement. A child’s two monthly rotational residence in England lacked degree of permanence to find habitual residence in England for the English court to make a residence order.”
