*Re E (a child) (abduction: custody rights)
Case date: 27 May 2005
The parties were both British nationals who had cohabited in Spain but not married. They had a child (E) together, who was now aged seven years. Following the parties separation, the mother returned to England with E. The father snatched E and returned to Spain with her.
The mother obtained an originating summons in wardship for E’s return. Thereafter, the father issued proceedings under the Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction (as set out in the Child Abduction and Custody Act 1985) (the Hague Convention) for wrongful removal.
Following the making of a consent order, the originating summons in wardship was discharged and the mother returned E to Spain.
