"A Wrong to be Righted?"

PRH Webb, 1976

The author examines case law applying relevant English and New Zealand statutory provisions to the effect that a local court will not grant ancillary relief in respect of a foreign decree for divorce or nullity, due to the absence of prior proceedings in that (local) court. A plea is made for reform in this area of the law in regard to foreign decrees that would be recognised by a New Zealand court.
