JAF – The list of judges from the Luxembourg Family Courts

Judges of the Luxembourg Family Courts - 2022/23

Luxembourg City Tribunal & Diekirch Tribunal

For a parent and child, being together is essential part of family life. Their separation has irremediable negative effect on their relationship and the up-bringing of children. Equality between parents must be guaranteed and promoted from the moment a child arrives. A child should never be deprived of his natural human right to family life and equal access to both parents. No one has the right to decide which of the parents’ love and care has more value.

Judges from the Luxembourg Family Courts, members of an elite group, deciding every day about children’s future and their well-being have a legal instrument in their hands to do the right thing. Article 378-1 of the recently changed Luxembourg Civil Code allows introduction of Résidence Alternée Égalitaire – Equal Shared Parenting in the best interest of child(ren) regardless even if one of the parents objects.

Résidence Alternée Égalitaire may not resolve every issue parents deal with when separating but the model is the most effective bringing emotional stability to children during separation and after divorce. Most importantly it protects the kids by removing the possibility for either parent to use own children as an instrument of blackmail or chantage.

Please use below information to contact the judges on an individual or collective basis and advocate Résidence Alternée Égalitaire – Equal Shared Parenting so the model becomes a norm and a starting point for all custody hearings in Luxembourg.
