MCB v NMF

Parent and child – Specific issue order – Relocation. Court of Session: In a case in which the mother of a girl aged 5½ sought a specific issue order entitling her to remove the child from Scotland to live in Northern Cyprus, the court concluded that it had not been shown that that relocation would in fact be in the best interests of the child and that from the child's perspective it would be better to allow relocation than to make no order; the likely diminution of the strong bond that had developed between the child and her father was the single biggest factor militating against granting permission to the defender to relocate.
