"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.
