The increase in international mobility means that there are now significantly more child maintenance cases which include an international element.

Enhanced inter-country cooperation in the processing of such applications has resulted in more effective recovery of maintenance, so that practitioners and legal advisors need to have a good grasp of the various rules and regulations in respect of jurisdiction and reciprocal enforcement in this increasingly relevant and complex area.

This book provides straightforward guidance to the law and procedures that govern applications for new orders and enforcement of existing orders to and from abroad. The overview of domestic legislation, procedure, analysis of international law (including the EU Council Maintenance Regulation 4/2009 and the implementation of the 2007 Hague Convention on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance) and summary of enforcement procedure will equally assist legal advisors at Family Proceedings Courts and practitioners instructed to deal with financial orders and provide advice on reciprocal enforcement.
