EU’s hard Brexit per 29 March 2019 is is not yet a reality but is getting closer and closer. This will certainly affect the validity and functioning of European regulations between the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. Consider, for example, the jurisdiction of the Dutch court in divorce cases and cases of parental responsibility or custody (Brussel II bis regulation) and spouce or child alimony cases (European Alimony Regulation), but as well cases of international protection measures, for example an international contact ban (European Regulation on protection measures). One can also think of the rules on the recognition and enforcement of judgments (court decisions) across the British/Dutch border, which will be made more difficult. In many areas, international treaties will continue to regulate cooperation between the Netherlands and the UK. In that sense there will therefore be a safety net for the situation that has arisen. But this safety net could change the legal and judicial reality. Stay up to this and get advice on time! BSS Family law can be of service to you.
