On 29 October, a decree stipulating measures for the enforcement of the 26 May 2004 Act on Divorce was adopted. This decree reforms procedural provisions relating to divorce and marital separation of the Code of Civil Procedure, as well as provisions relating to proceedings before the family law judge. The decree gives the judge an important role in counselling and provides that compensatory property settlements may be temporarily enforced before the final decision. Furthermore, this decree provides that unlawful international displacement of children falls within the jurisdiction of the family law judge (see legislation May 2004).
