Walsall MBS v KK & Anor [2013] EWHC 3192 (Fam) (07 October 2013)

The Court refused a formal request from the Centre for the International Legal Protection of Children and Youth in Bratislava for a transfer of the care proceedings relating to children of Slovakian nationality (who had lived in England all their lives) to Slovakia, pursuant to Article 15 of the Regulation. The court found the Slovak authority to be operating under a misunderstanding of the children’s placement with foster carers.
