Consultation
on the functioning of the Brussels IIa Regulation

 

Objective of the consultation

Disputes
on family matters have increased in the EU due to the growing mobility of
citizens and the rising number of international families, notably families
whose members are of different nationalities, live in different EU countries or
live in an EU country of which one or more of them are not nationals.

The
Brussels IIa Regulation  (hereafter
"the Regulation") is the cornerstone of European Union (hereafter
"the EU") judicial cooperation in matrimonial matters and matters of
parental responsibility. The Regulation applies since 1 March 2005 in all EU
countries except Denmark.

The
Regulation determinates in cross-border situations the responsible court for
spouses who want to divorce, separate or annul their marriage. In relations
between children and their parents, whether they are married or not, the
Regulation determines the responsible court to settle parental responsibility
disputes including custody and visiting rights, primarily aiming at the
protection of the best interests of the child. In cases of cross-border
parental child abduction the Regulation makes available a procedure to return
the child to the place of his or her habitual residence.

The
Commission has recently launched a review of the functioning of the Regulation.
To this end, it has published a report on its application. The results of the
present consultation will feed an overall assessment of the instrument.

 

Period of consultation-15 April 2014 to 18 July 2014
