Re LR (A Child) (Jurisdiction: Brussels II Revised)

Family proceedings – Jurisdiction. The proceedings concerned the father's private law application in relation to his daughter. The judge had found that the English court had had jurisdiction to hear the proceedings in accordance with Council Regulation (EC) 2201/2003 (concerning jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in matrimonial matters and the matters of parental responsibility) (Brussels II Revised). The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the mother's appeal. The judge's order declaring and ordering that the court had jurisdiction had to be set aside and, in its place, it was declared that, in accordance with Brussels II Revised, the English court did not have jurisdiction to determine the father's application.
