"Annulment of Foreign Marriages and Recognition of Foreign Divorces"

BD Inglis, 1955

The author highlights anomalies that may ensue in regard to nullity suits if s 10B of the Divorce and Matrimonial Causes Act 1928 is regarded as an exhaustive code that excludes the common law, especially in regard to marriages where the parties were domiciled overseas at the time of marriage. In regard to s 12A, the author expresses serious concerns in regard to the recognition of a foreign divorce decree, based on the “deemed” domicile of the wife, which may be acquired after a very short period of residence.
