The EU referendum has been described as the most important vote for our country in a generation. No one will vote solely on the basis of family law. But EU involvement in family law is a microcosm of some national issues. With so many horror stories of ‘Project Fear’ if we were to leave, what is and might be the family law position?
I wrote on this subject 12 months ago in the concluding chapter of Jordan Publishing’s International Family Law Practice and little has changed. I identify first the concerns about EU involvement and ambitions in our family law and then analyse the impact on areas of family law if we left.
