Position

With regard to her expertise in matters of jurisdiction, Natalia has successfully argued lack of jurisdiction in the High Court concerning a child born in Ireland, and successfully argued for transfer of proceedings under Article 15 BRII to Hungary. The child was subsequently repatriated to Hungary where the mother was residing.

She has also successfully represented parents in cases involving removal from the jurisdiction, internal relocation and temporary removal disputes.Natalia has represented CAFCASS Legal in forced-marriage proceedings in relation to a 13-year-old girl abducted to a non-Hague Convention Country in the midst of civil war. She has regularly represented parties in cases where child abduction is a key concern.
