A v A [2012] EWCA Civ 1396; [2012] WLR (D) 297

“Where children who had been born in England had been forcibly removed to another country and retained there by one parent against the wish of the other, that could not change the children’s place of habitual residence from England to the other country. However a child who had been born in a foreign country and had not set foot in England did not acquire on birth the habitual residence of his parents or custodial parent, even where at the time of his birth the mother was being forcibly detained in that country by the father.”
