Divorce – Jurisdiction. The parties had been married. The husband sought a separation order from the Italian court and the wife issued divorce proceedings in England. The wife's proceedings were stayed. The Italian court confirmed its jurisdiction and granted the husband the order, which was a precursor to divorce in Italy. The wife issued a second petition for divorce and the husband applied for a divorce in Italy. The Family Division, in dismissing the wife's petitions, held that the Italian court had been seised when her first petition had been made and that that had not been lost by the time the wife had issued her second petition.
