Guidance for legal professionals on cross-EU border family law disputes (including divorce and child maintenance) after Brexit if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
This guidance is provided for the information of legal practitioners involved in family law in Scotland and the EU in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. It is not legal advice. It is not a complete statement of the law.
Practitioners should be aware that they may need to consider leading judgments from the UK courts and judgments from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) where relevant.
Members of the public involved in cross-border family law disputes should read the guidance for the public.
