"Getting it Right in One"

PRH Webb, 1998

This case note deals with the issue of parental consent raised in Kawasaki v Kawasaki [1997] NZFLR 932 (DC). With reference to English case law, the author highlights the anomalies that may ensue should the forum not heed a different classification of parental consent in the relevant lex domicilii. Therefore the approach of the judge in considering the possibility that parental consent might be regarded as a matter of capacity to marry, rather than a formality in Japanese law, is welcomed.
