This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the Committee on Legal Affairs, explores the possible legal scenarios of judicial cooperation between the EU and the UK at both the stage of the withdrawal and of the future relationship in the area of family law, covering the developments up until 5 October 2018. More specifically, it assesses the advantages and disadvantages of the various options for what should happen to family law cooperation after Brexit in terms of legal certainty, effectiveness and coherence. It also reflects on the possible impact of the departure of the UK from the EU on the further development of EU family law. Finally, it offers some policy recommendations on the topics under examination.

The right of access is a key aspect of the basic right of contact between parents and children. The inadequacy, in many cases, of relevant means of enforcement throws up major problems with regard to cross-border rights of access in particular. Multilateral conventions are concerned primarily with the recognition and efficient implementation of decisions by national courts. The EU considers that it needs to enact its own legislation in the realm of family and succession law, as elsewhere: legislation which, in its field of application, will supersede the multilateral conventions. As well as being concerned with the recognition of decisions, this legislation should place more emphasis on the establishment of international institutions and machinery to assist in negotiating and making arrangements for cross-border visiting rights.
