"Birch v Birch: Conflicts of Laws Principles"

This is an analysis of Birch v Birch [2001] 3 NZLR 413; [2001] NZFLR 563, which concerned the division of the proceeds of a (formerly) foreign immovable asset in terms of the Matrimonial Property Act 1976 and more specifically the dates at which to classify, value and establish jurisdiction over such property. Although the Family Court and the High Court reached the same result, the author does not find the different approaches and reasoning adopted by the different judges entirely convincing.
