Re Z (a child) (jurisdiction: transfer to Poland)

Family proceedings – Jurisdiction. The Family Court held that proceedings in the English court, concerning a baby boy born to a Polish national mother, would be stayed, as a first step to transferring the matter to Poland under art 15 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/2003. In the circumstances, it was clearly in the best interests of Z for arrangements to be made for he and his mother, who wished to return to Poland, to return there together.
