Fact-finding hearing concerning the family of two children, a girl aged three and a boy aged two, in respect of whom there are cross-applications for residence orders by their mother and father.
The central allegation is made by the mother, who says that in September 2012 she was taken to Pakistan by the father and abandoned there. It was not until March 2013 that she managed, after much official intervention, to return to England. The situation she alleges is that of a ‘stranded spouse’.
