Choice of law clauses — Jurisdictional agreements and the common law — Jurisdiction clauses — Children — Marriage

This chapter examines private international law rules that govern orders concerning children, including orders determining with whom a child shall live or with whom he may have contact. It first considers the rules governing the jurisdiction of the English courts as regards parental responsibility matters, the choice of law rules applied, and the different provisions for the recognition and enforcement of parental responsibility and related orders made elsewhere. In particular, it discusses orders granted in another European Union Member State, except Denmark; orders granted in another Contracting State to the 1996 Hague Protection Convention; and orders granted in Scotland and Northern Ireland. It also analyses the relevant provisions of the Child Abduction and Custody Act 1985 and common law rules before concluding with an overview of other important developments including the 1996 Hague Convention and the Council of Europe Convention on Contact concerning Children.
