Cases requiring the examination of a decision by the National Social Appeal Board, Division of Family Affairs, may be brought before the jurisdiction of the complainant's domicile in Denmark, if the complainant is domiciled in Denmark. If he or she is not domiciled in Denmark, the case must be brought before Copenhagen District Court. Appeals against any decision by Copenhagen District Court may be lodged with the High Court; appeals against any decision by the latter may be lodged with the Supreme Court, provided that the Appeals Permission Board gives its consent. On receiving an application from a party, Copenhagen District Court may refer the case for examination by the High Court if a matter of principle is at stake.
