Re B (a minor) (habitual residence)

Family proceedings – Jurisdiction. The Family Court held that B, a child, was habitually resident in England and Wales in a case where B's mother applied for the summary return of B to the jurisdiction of New York State, and B's father (F) objected. The child's life was at the centre of the enquiry and, in an otherwise peripatetic life, B had put down secure roots in England with F and that was where B thought of as home.
