"Divorce, The Royal Commission, and the Conflict of Laws"

JW Davies and BD Inglis, 1957

The authors critically analyse certain provisions of the Royal Commission's Draft Code on Jurisdiction and Recognition (UK, annexed to the Report of the Royal Commission on Marriage and Divorce (1951-1955)) in the light of the New Zealand law governing jurisdiction in divorce cases, as well as the recognition of foreign divorce and nullity decrees. They conclude that, although the Draft Code contains valuable recommendations, New Zealand statutory reform has been progressive and already addresses most of the points raised by the Commission.
