This article aims to provide an overview of the key aspects of the new Maintenance Regulation, coming into force on 18th June 2011. It considers the European definition of 'maintenance', looks at the jurisdictional and applicable law provisions and examines the new procedure for recognition and enforcement of judgments under the Regulation. It compares it, where possible, to the current provisions of Brussels I and concludes by raising questions as to the effect that the Regulation will have on family law in practice.
