Part 4 E+WRecognition and enforcement

RecognitionE+W

19(1)A protective measure taken in relation to an adult under the law of a country other than England and Wales is to be recognised in England and Wales if it was taken on the ground that the adult is habitually resident in the other country.E+W

(b)the adult was not given an opportunity to be heard, and

(c)that omission amounted to a breach of natural justice.

(4)It may also disapply this paragraph in relation to a measure if it thinks that—

(a)recognition of the measure would be manifestly contrary to public policy,

(b)the measure would be inconsistent with a mandatory provision of the law of England and Wales, or

(c)the measure is inconsistent with one subsequently taken, or recognised, in England and Wales in relation to the adult.

(5)And the court may disapply this paragraph in relation to a measure taken under the law of a Convention country in a matter to which Article 33 applies, if the court thinks that that Article has not been complied with in connection with that matter.

(2)The court must make the declaration if—

(a)the measure comes within sub-paragraph (1) or (2) of paragraph 19, and

(b)the paragraph is not disapplied in relation to it as a result of sub-paragraph (3), (4) or (5).

(3)A measure to which a declaration under this paragraph relates is enforceable in England and Wales as if it were a measure of like effect taken by the court.
