AW v KJ [2018] EWHC 2229 (Fam)

22nd June 2018

Barrister: Asha Groves 
Summary: Application under the inherent jurisdiction for a return order. This was the father’s application under the inherent jurisdiction for the return of his daughter (‘E’), aged two and a half from Russia. E had lived in Russia since February 2016 when she moved there aged 4 months with her mother, a Latvian national. On the parties’ separation in early 2016, the father suspected that the mother may remove the child from the jurisdiction and on 9.2.16 an order was granted prohibiting her from removing the child.
