As a consequence of the increased mobility of families between different countries, family lawyers are now frequently faced with international issues arising in their cases.

This major practitioner reference work provides comprehensive coverage of the international elements of English law, and includes all relevant source material, thereby providing an indispensable guide for solicitors, barristers and the judiciary to this rapidly expanding area of law and practice.

This new edition is fully updated throughout to include:

  • Consideration of the possible impact of Brexit on international family law matters
  • The specific rules for allocation of cases, with certificates of complexity, to High Court judges
  • The practical aspects of what lawyers need to do to gain priority of proceedings (‘lis pendens’)
  • The detailed interaction between Brussels II Revised and the 1996 Hague Convention
  • Guidance concerning allocation of international surrogacy parental order applications
  • Analysis of the applicable principles in internal relocation matters and the development of case-law on external relocations
  • Significant new case-law on public law proceedings with an international element
  • Recent EU Maintenance Regulation decisions
  • A new chapter on Female Genital Mutilation
