YLA v PM [2013] EWHC 4020 (COP), [2013] MHLO 114

(Redirected from YLA v PM (2013) EWHC 3622 (Fam), (2013) MHLO 114)

There was a very significant possibility that PM married YLA and had a child with her for reasons solely to do with his immigration status. Parker J made interim declarations including that YLA lacked capacity to consent to sexual relations or marriage, or to decide where she should live, and provided general guidance on such forced marriage cases.

The transcript which was initially made available had the neutral citation number [2013] EWHC 3622 (Fam)Not on Bailii!, but the case was later published on Bailii as [2013] EWHC 4020 (COP)B.


Thanks to Alex Ruck Keene (39 Essex Chambers) for providing the judgment.
