Articles: 23,26,34,52,55

In accordance with Article 34, paragraph 2, of the Convention, the Republic of Bulgaria declares that requests under paragraph 1 of the same article shall be communicated only through its Central Authority.

In accordance with Article 60, paragraph 1, and pursuant to Article 55, paragraph 1, of the Convention, the Republic of Bulgaria reserves the jurisdiction of its authorities to take measures directed to the protection of property of a child situated on its territory, as well as the right not to recognise any parental responsibility or measure in so far as it is incompatible with any measure taken by its authorities in relation to that property.

Articles 23, 26, 52 of the Convention allow Contracting Parties a degree of flexibility in order to apply a simple and rapid regime for the recognition and enforcement of judgments. The Community rules provide for a system of recognition and enforcement which is at least as favourable as the rules laid down in the Convention.
Accordingly, a judgment given in a court of a Member State of the European Union, in respect of a matter relating to the Convention, shall be recognized and enforced in the Republic of Bulgaria by application of the relevant internal rules of the Community law.
