In Re K (A Minor) (Removal From Jurisdiction: Practice): FD 29 Jul 1999

Where a child was subject to a contact order, and one parent sought to take the child abroad on holiday to a country which was not a signatory to the Convention, that application should be dealt with by a High Court Judge, and must be thoroughly prepared and investigated, since the risk of the parent not returning would be irredeemable. Undertakings were not sufficient.
