‘Brexit’ and the impact on International Family Law

The world is now reeling from news about Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU), dubbed ‘Brexit’ – a shortened version of the phrase ‘British Exit’. The momentous referendum was held on 23 June 2016 and a majority of voters in England voted to leave the EU. This move has caused unprecedented political, economic and social changes in the country and around the world. These changes will only prompt further developments in areas that we have yet to think about.

What, if anything, does this mean to the legal fraternity, and in particular, family lawyers?

This article written by our United Kingdom colleague David Hodson from The International Family Law Group LLP (London) discusses the impact of Brexit on international family law.

The International Family Law Group LLP have also launched a free Brexit family law helpdesk to provide information for family lawyers in the UK and abroad and those involved in family court proceedings about the impact of Brexit on family law.
