RAB v MIB conflict between Scottish and English Jurdisdictions
The link is to a Scottish Appeal about a case where someone took a child to England from Scotland and an English Family Court decided unlawfully to take jurisdiction.
It is symptomatic of the way in which some English and Welsh Family Courts do not follow proper procedure and yet the system basically tolerates this.
I have even seen a case where a couple were divorced without the husband being told.
Note importantly in 6.Despite the length and complexity of those proceedings, it may be noted that there has never been any hearing in England in which evidence respecting the substantive issues concerning the welfare of the child has been heard.This is the Court of Appeal judgment from 2004
