1. Dear Marina, I would advise you to either attend the court case yourself or better still, get an Irish solicitor from the locality in Ireland where the case is happening, to attend on your behalf. This is because of the risk that the court will make an adverse order against you in the case in Ireland. Be aware that your solicitor or yourself, should be making the case that the Irish court has no jurisdiction over the children as they are now resident in England. So, you should seek to dispose of the case at the initial stage by arguing that the court does not have jurisdiction to hear the case. This is because there is an EU wide convention which gives jurisdiction to the courts of the place where the children are resident, which is England.
