The enforceability of foreign orders is a highly complex area of family law.
There have been, and continue to be, various treaties in relation to recognition and enforcement of foreign orders in this country as well as European Council Regulations. The broad position is that orders, judgments and properly notarised agreements made abroad should be put into effect in this country. There are circumstances where this will not be the case or where a party may not be limited solely to the provision ordered or agreed elsewhere, but this will depend on the circumstances of the case.
Hughes Fowler Carruthers has a wide experience in dealing with enforcement of orders, both in this jurisdiction and abroad, as well as in overturning decisions made in other jurisdictions.
