Jurisdiction and Judgments (Family) (Amendment etc) (EU Exit) (No 2) Regulations 2019

These Regulations, which come into force immediately before exit day, are made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies in retained EU law (in particular to address reciprocal arrangements which no longer exist and are no longer appropriate) arising from the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union.

Regulation 2 amends the Schedule to the Jurisdiction and Judgments (Family) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 to amend the jurisdiction provisions in Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989 and Schedule 1 to the Children (Northern Ireland) Order 1995.
