The Concentrate Questions and Answers series offers the best preparation for tackling exam and assignment questions. Each book includes key debates, typical questions, diagram answer plans, suggested answers, author commentary, and tips to gain extra marks. This chapter focuses on international relocation and child abduction. The first question is an essay question that considers the law relating to international relocation, ie how the English courts have dealt with applications to relocate out of the jurisdiction (eg Payne v Payne). The second is a problem question that requires the application of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects on International Child Abduction 1980 and The European Convention 1980, but also considers the law that applies if a child is taken to England and Wales from a country that has not ratified the Hague Convention.
