"Losing a Domicile of Choice"

GF Orchard, 1968

In a note on Re Flynn (deceased) Flynn v Flynn, the author discusses the different tests as regards the requisite intention for the abandonment of a domicile of choice: (1) the loss of the requisite intention for acquiring a domicile of choice, or (2) a positive intention not to return to the domicile of choice. The first test was favoured in Re Flynn, which would have made it easier to lose a domicile of choice and, at the time, that would more readily have led to a revival of the domicile of origin.
