Mehvish Chaudhry co-authors article which explores the 1980 Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and British Overseas Territories

12th Apr 2021 | News

Mehvish Chaudhry has co-authored an article alongside James Netto, Partner at The International Family Law Group, which discusses Mostyn J’s decision in VB v TR [2020] EWHC 877 (Fam).

The case concerns an application for the summary return of a child to the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda and the reasoning behind the “colonial anachronism” leading to the lack of application of the 1980 Hague Convention. It is argued by the authors of the article that such a notable lacuna in the field is counter-intuitive in combating the wrongful removal and retention of children and in providing a clear and expeditious framework for resolving cases of child abduction.

The full article will be published in Issue 1 of International Family Law
