Hi, I wanted to know, under what circumstances would a judge give a court order preventing the removal of a child out of the country or away from the father if the child has habitual residency in the uk, the child and mother are born in america but father is uk born, child will be coming to the country with mother. So if mother after 7 months tried to take the baby with the intention of not coming back to the uk.
Thank you for your question, I will do my best to assist.
If the child is habitually resident in the UK then the mother will need to apply to the Courts for Leave to Remove the child from the UK.
These are not easy cases when it comes to predicting outcomes - but the fact that the mother would be returning home would be an important plus in her favour

I hope that this is of assistance to you

what if the father is married to the mother & the wedding was in the uk & the child also as a result of being born to a british father has now got british residency, would the mother not be prevented as the family life is now in the uk & she would be taking the child away from the father ?

That would be for the Judge on the day to decide I am afraid
