Child and Family Law Quarterly, Vol. 13, No. 4, pp. 455-462, 2001
Payne v. Payne concerned a father's appeal against an order giving his ex-wife permission permanently to remove their child from the UK. The wife, a citizen of New Zealand, wished to return with her daughter to live in K ew Zealand, having been required to return to the UK from New Zealand as a result of proceedings brought by the father under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction 1980. The mother was living in London with her daughter when she made her application. The girl, aged four at the time of appeal, was having regular contact with her father and paternal grandmother, spending alternate long weekends (from Wednesday or Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon) with them. The mother applied for, and obtained, an order permitting her to remove her daughter from the jurisdiction. The father appealed.
