Aidan Vine KC was instructed by the local authority in Coventry City Council v The Mother (BB) & Ors.  EWHC 1284 (Fam). This case was a final hearing of care proceedings relating to a three year-old child whose parents are US citizens. All orders sought by the local authority were made. After navigating a complex overseas enforcement regime in order to secure the placement, the child was placed with their maternal aunt and uncle in Florida, under a Special Guardianship Order. An earlier hearing AA v BB & Ors  EWHC 2322 (Fam) included a Hague application and a challenge to jurisdiction.
