This chapter covers the jurisdiction in matrimonial matters under the Brussels IIb Regulation. It expounds on the second chapter of the Regulation, which addresses the regime applicable to matrimonial matters and the matters of parental responsibility. The regime on international jurisdiction in matrimonial matters primarily aims to provide a wide selection of fora to allow a spouse to obtain divorce, legal separation, or annulment. The chapter explains that each selection is governed by the conflict-of-law rule of the forum. It also looks into the laws applicable for spousal maintenance, legal separation, and dissolution of the spouses’ matrimonial property regime.
