Regulation (EC) No 2201/2003 concerning jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in matrimonial matters and the matters of parental responsibility
Due to people’s mobility, occurrences of international marriages are more and more often. If such an international couple decides to divorce, which legal system and laws are applicable? What is the impact of EU law on national systems of private law, more precisely family law? How should EU Member States' courts determine the habitual residence of the child?
The seminar will include a debate on best practices on how to avoid a dispute between national courts over recognizing custody orders and on the impact of the Charter of fundamental rights.
From a procedural point of view, a discussion of the reasons for using the urgent preliminary procedure when contact between the child and one of the parents had been broken is welcome.
For this seminar NIM is covering accommodation and meals for all the participants. International transport will remain in the charge of each participant.
