(Family Division, Peter Jackson J, 27 February 2013)

The Romanian family lived in the UK and when the parents separated the father was granted interim residence of the child by the Romanian courts until proceedings had concluded.

The mother claimed to have never been served with documents in relation to the Romanian proceedings and resisted registration in the English court of the Romanian order.

The judge found that the combination of documents and information provided by the father strongly suggested that the mother was well aware of proceedings in the Romanian courts and that she had every opportunity to present her case there. The court, therefore, had no basis upon which to refuse recognition of the judgment and the mother's appeal against registration was refused.

The mother was appealing the decision of the Romanian court and, therefore, it was appropriate for the court to place a stay on registration pending the outcome of that appeal.
