Domicile – Morris v Davies [2011] EWHC 1973 (Ch)

Domicile is considered in this case where a British citizen worked in France but lived in Belgium.  It was held he retained his domicile of origin. 
 
In reaching this decision it was found that France was clearly just a place of work and nothing more.  His connection to Belgium was more significant but still fell short of him changing his domicile.  He made no connection to the culture or language and had no assets there aside from one bank account.
