The Supreme Court has today handed down judgment in the case of In the Matter of B (A child) [2016] UKSC 4 and has allowed (by a majority of 3 to 2) an appeal by a non-biological mother of a child, holding that the unilateral removal of the child to Pakistan by the biological mother did not cause the child to lose her English habitual residence, and that the English court retained full jurisdiction to make decisions about her welfare.
