In re Marriage of Paillier, E038464

In case involving French decree giving child custody to mother, visitation rights to father, and French injunction against mother moving away with the child, followed by mother moving from France to California with the child, trial court's order that the child be returned to France or else the father would obtain sole legal and physical custody, is reversed as it violated the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act by changing custody, and by ordering that the mother not move away with the child.
