Divall v Divall

Divorce – Domicile. The Family Division held that the courts of England and Wales did not have jurisdiction to entertain the applicant husband's divorce petition as the respondent wife had not been domiciled in England at the time that the husband issued his petition. Even if the wife had obtained a domicile of choice in England following her marriage, she had not retained it at the date of the husband's divorce petition.
