AB v AB

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division dismissed the father's application, under the court's inherent jurisdiction, for an order that his child should move to live in Algeria and for a stay of the mother's proceedings in England. It held, among other things, that it was clearly not in a position to decide, on a summary basis, that it would be in the child's best interests to make the orders sought. To make a summary order uprooting her from her home and requiring her to move with her mother to Algeria would be contrary to her best interests.
