*Re LC (Children)

Minor – Abduction. The Supreme Court held that the courts might, in making a determination of habitual residence in relation to an adolescent child who had resided in a place under the care of one of her parents, have regard to her own state of mind during her period of residence there in relation to the nature and quality of that residence. Further, the child should have been granted party status in the proceedings and that the Court of Appeal should have allowed her appeal against the judge's refusal of it.
