Updated 4 MOST IMPORTANT effects of BREXIT on Divorce and Family Law disputes concerning Ireland and the UK

Summary:

Family law disputes with an EU law angle will become less clear, more complicated and take longer to resolve.

Child abduction cases taken under the Hague Convention are unlikely to be as severely affected and the emergency provisions and urgency of these non EU law elements will not be affected by Brexit.

We still do not know how this process will pan out and it is probably too early to predict how things will end up.

MOST IMPORTANT 

If you have a family law/separation/divorce/child law/child abduction issue involving the UK or possibly relating to persons living in Britain or if you live there then you should seek legal advice immediately and see whether it is in your best interests to move your case on asap.
