ABDUCTION: Re S (Abduction: Children's Representation) [2008] EWHC 1798 (Fam)
Date:8 MAY 2008

(Family Division; Charles J; 8 May 2008)

In a case concerning an Argentinean family, the product of (a) the orders made by the Argentinean court, granting the mother permission to bring the children to England for substantial periods, and (b) the father's imminent posting to Australia, was that this was now essentially an English case. All three of these children, aged 15, 12 and 9, were speaking their own minds when they objected to a return to Argentina and there were compelling child-centred reasons as to why they did not want to return to Argentina for decisions to be made as to their future in Argentina.
