Re S (a child) (care proceedings: article 15 second transfer)

Family proceedings – Jurisdiction. The mother's application to transfer care proceedings back from England and Wales to Ireland, where the proceedings had originated, was dismissed. The Family Court found that, pursuant to art 15 of Council Regulation (EC) 2201/2003, it was not in the child's best interests for jurisdiction to be transferred and further, that the courts in Ireland were not better placed to assume jurisdiction.
