Domicile - A Critical Analysis Of The Position In Cheshire, North & Fawcett Private International Law



This paper critically examines the concept of Domicile, the General Rules, makes clear the position of Prisoners, Married women, Refugees, Fugitives from justice, Fugitive debtors, Invalids, Corporations. It contrasts the domicile of origin concept from the domicile of choice and suggests that the concept of domicile should be abolished in favour of nationality since they should be defined to mean the same thing.

It introduces a purely new dimension to the concept of domicile stating reasons why every person should have only one domicile at any point in time. It tells us that the idea is very workable and that the concept of revival of domicile of origin should be done away with; while there should be no distinction between domicile and nationality. At the end of the paper, we get to know why dual nationality should be expunged globally.
