Family proceedings Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division considered proceedings issued by the mother under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction alleging wrongful retention of the child or otherwise seeking summary return to Mexico. The court found that an agreement ostensibly reached between the parties in the Mexican court had not acted as retrospective consent to fix the child's habitual residence in Mexico. Accordingly, the Convention proceedings were on the basis of the child's habitual residence in the UK.
