Court of Justice of the European Union: Judgment in Case C-522/20 OE (Habitual residence of a spouse, nationality)

The period of residence required in order for the courts of a Member State to exercise their jurisdiction to hear and determine an application for divorce may legitimately vary according to the nationality of the applicant

Since having the nationality of the Member State concerned helps to ensure a real link with that State, it is not manifestly inappropriate to require, in such circumstances, a minimum period of habitual residence in the national territory of six months instead of one year
