*sm*In the High Court of Justice- Family Division-7th February 2014*em*

Upon the Father’s application, Mrs Justice Hogg, DBE was asked to make a declaration as to Habitual Residence of the children and the courts jurisdiction to deal with the welfare concerns of the parties’ minor children.

The Applicant Father was given an opportunity to reflect and it was only the night before the Hearing that he conceded his position. The Judge accepted that the Respondent Mother could not afford any additional fees but had to prepare the case and had incurred legal costs in dealing with the wholly unnecessary application.* The Judge therefore made cost order against the Applicant Father in relation to these proceedings
