X County Council v T and others

Child – Care. Following a decision by the local authority for care proceedings in respect of a family resident in England, the father removed the children to the Republic of Ireland. Following a hearing in order to determine habitual residence for the purposes of Council Regulation (EC) 2201/2003 (concerning Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Matrimonial Matters and the Matters of Parental Responsibility) the Family Division held that the father's actions in removing the children to Ireland had not changed their habitual residence from England to Ireland.
