A New York court ruled against an ex-husband and granted France jurisdiction over a pending child custody dispute, as reported by The New York Law Journal in a September 19th, 2011 article.
The ex-husband argued that his ex-wife had fraudulently obtained a passport for their child and took extreme measures to prevent him from following her to France. The court ruled that the ex-husband could not receive a child custody order in a New York court because of the Uniform Child Custody and Enforcement Act.
The court did grant New York jurisdiction over the couple’s pending divorce case because the ex-husband established that he had met the “durational residency requirements.”
