Young v Young [2012] EWHC 138 (Fam) (03 February 2012)

The court dismissed a Husband’s application for the return of his passport which was held by the tipstaff pending the conclusion of ancillary relief proceedings. The court considered the authorities and found the Husband to be in contempt of court and further that the Wife had a good case for a substantive award, the Husband was plainly about to quit the jurisdiction and this would materially prejudice the Wife in her application.
