Family lawyers beware of The European Maintenance Regulation

11th April 2016

In the case of Re: V [2016] EWHC 668 (Fam) Mrs Justice Parker decided that the raising of divorce proceedings in Dumbarton Sheriff Court did not of itself accord jurisdiction to that Scottish court in the matter of maintenance as no maintenance orders were craved in said proceedings, only divorce and expenses. The English Court has therefore accepted jurisdiction in relation to the matter of maintenance for the wife and has refused to stay the English proceedings.
