Withdrawal Agreement Family Law

(1) Both parents are nationals of the European Union or the United Kingdom (as applicable) (even in the area of personal application of the agreement, see above, z.B. a German banker and his Austrian spouse residing in the United Kingdom) (2) one parent is an EU citizen or a UK national (within the personal scope of the agreement, see above) and the other national of the host state , z.B. an Italian freelance journalist and her uk-based national partner in the United Kingdom; or (3) a parent is a citizen of the European Union or a national of the United Kingdom (in the area of personal application of the agreement, see above) and has custody of the child, alone or shared, in accordance with the applicable family law provisions of an EU or UK Member State, including applicable provisions under private international law (under which custody of a third country is granted in the Member State or the United Kingdom) , particularly with regard to the best interests of the child, and without prejudice to the normal functioning of these rules of private international law; z.B. a Bulgarian mother living in the Uk and granted sole custody) On 18 January 2019, the European Commission established guidelines for Member States responsible for competence, recognition and enforcement in civil and private law. Although these are only guidelines, it is indicated that an EU Member State will not take effect before the "exit day" unless the required registration procedure has been completed before the day of exit. In general, in the absence of binding EU guidelines or agreements, the position on UK injunctions and decisions will be the responsibility of each Member State, in accordance with their national law. The situation could vary from member state to Member State and parallel consultation in that country will be essential. The only exception is for children born after withdrawal from the United Kingdom for whom a parent who is not covered by the withdrawal agreement has sole custody under applicable family law. The Support Obligations Regulation allows the parties to agree on the jurisdiction that will deal with future maintenance disputes, and this agreement will give that Member State exclusive jurisdiction. These provisions are generally referred to as "judicial electoral convention" and these provisions are common in marital agreements. When proceedings are initiated in another jurisdiction, it is likely that that Member State will suspend its proceedings so that the right to support in the agreed jurisdiction is managed by applying the rule of hanging. We implement a number of webinars and regularly publish instructions to help you and your company prepare for the end of the transition period, even if the UK and EU do not agree on a future partnership.
