Maintenance and Child Support in Private International Law

By Lara Walker

No one would dispute that the duty to provide for those that you have a legal and moral obligation to support is very important. In the case of maintenance after family divorce, with the movement and migration of people both within Europe and globally, there are more and more families and relations who live in different States. Therefore, it is imperative that suitable and workable methods exist to create maintenance obligations and then secure the transfer of funds, particularly from abroad. In this book, the provisions in EU Maintenance Regulation no 4/2009 and the Hague Maintenance Convention of 2007 are analyzed in order to discover what developments and, therefore, potential improvements have been made in relation to the recovery of maintenance from abroad. The book also includes an empirical study on the first year of operation of the Maintenance Regulation. The information and analysis are used to suggest suitable solutions for the future, which include amendments to the Regulation and recommendations for best practice.
