Lachaux v Lachaux

Divorce – Foreign decree. The High Court of Justice, Family Division, granted a father's applications to recognise as valid an order for divorce and custody of his child granted in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, in circumstances where the divorce in Dubai predated a subsequent divorce petition made by the mother in England. Accordingly, the decrees nisi and absolute in England were set aside and the mother's application under the Children Act 1989 for contact with their child was also set aside in circumstances where the child was resident in Dubai.
