President provides guidance on international cases

The President of the Family Division has published guidance on the conduct of family law cases with an international dimension.

In newly published documents, Sir James Munby addresses procedure in two related areas:

*Liaison between English and Welsh family courts and British embassies and High Commissions in other countries.


*The transfer of proceedings from one country to another, under EU regulations Brussels IIa and/ or the 1996 Hague Convention on Parental Responsibility and Protection of Children.

Meanwhile, the third document provides answer to frequently asked questions about family cases involving more than one country.

The documents are available for download here, here, and here respectively.

The blog team at Stowe is a group of writers based across our family law offices who share their advice on the wellbeing and emotional aspects of divorce or separation from personal experience. As well as pieces from our family law solicitors, guest contributors also regularly contribute to share their knowledge.
