The latest Part of the Family Law Review publishes an article by Danielle Bozin-Odhiambo which critiques the usefulness of habitual residence as the sole connecting factor in Hague Convention child abduction cases.

By Michael Nicholls QC. This paper is based on a talk given in London in July 2010 at the Centre for Family Law and Practice’s conference on international child abduction, relocation and forced marriage. The purpose of the talk was to describe what to expect when making an application for the return of a child wrongfully removed to, or retained in, Australia, and why.
