Edward Bennett acted as junior counsel in MS v PS C-283/16

10th Feb 2017 | News

The CJEU has clarified that a maintenance creditor who has obtained an order in one member state and wishes to directly enforce it in another Member State may make an application directly to the competent authority of the latter Member State, and cannot be required, as the relevant English regulations (the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments (Maintenance) Regulations 2011) currently require, to submit the application to that court through the Central Authority of the Member State of enforcement. 

The judgment can be found here.
