H-K (Children) [2011] EWCA Civ 1100 10.10.2011

The CA allowed a Mother’s appeal against an order under the Hague Convention that 2 children be summarily returned to Australia. Notwithstanding the Mother’s effective admission that she had ‘strung’ the father along and caused him to believe that she would return with the children the CA held that the Judge had misdirected themselves in respect of the children’s habitual residence.
