"Nullity and Divorce: Recognition in New Zealand of English Decrees and Recognition in England of New Zealand Decrees"

PRH Webb, 1966

In this article hypothetical fact scenarios are used to illustrate: (1) the application of the New Zealand “codified” regime regarding the recognition of foreign divorce, dissolution and nullity decrees (Matrimonial Proceedings Act 1963, s 82) to the recognition of English decrees by New Zealand courts; and (2) the recognition of New Zealand decrees by English courts according to the non-statutory English regime. The author submits that the New Zealand codification could be a useful source of reference for possible law reform in this area of English law.

"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.
