Current Amendments Regulating Enforcement of Judgment in Upbringing of Minors in Slovakia


In her article the author deals with the amended provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure, effective as of 1 January 2012, governing the so called personal enforcement (enforcement of judgment in relation to the upbringing of minor children). In addition to the interpretation of the new statutory provisions, some reference is made also to various interpretation problems resulting from the new legal regulation, and some solutions of these problems are offered. Having analysed the more restrictive compulsory measures which may be ordered by the court against any person who has refused to comply voluntarily with the court decision concerning custody or visitation of a minor child or the decision relating to taking away a child, the author concludes that such measures may not always be effective.
