Family law — Jurisdiction under the Brussels II Regulation

This chapter tackles the rules on cooperation concerning parental responsibility and general provisions. It notes Article 76’s designation of central authorities to assist with the Brussels IIb Regulation and specification of the geographical or functional jurisdiction of the aforementioned authorities. The rules primarily aim to improve the operation of the Regulation by developing communication between the courts and authorities in the Member States. Central authorities are mandated to communicate information surrounding national laws and cooperate with competent authorities while considering the usage of the European Judicial Network. Moreover, central authorities must meet regularly in an effort to facilitate the application of the Regulation.
