The Kingdom of the Netherlands consisted of three parts: the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles, and Aruba. The Netherlands Antilles consisted of the islands of Curaçao, Sint Maarten, Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba.

With effect from 10. In October 2010, the Netherlands Antilles were to be held as part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

It is a change in the internal constitutional structure of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The Kingdom of the Netherlands declares that, as far as the Kingdom of the Netherlands is concerned, the term "motherland" used as a result of the said Convention is the "European territory" with a view to the relations which have been established in accordance with the provisions of the public law between the European part of the Netherlands, Aruba, Curacao, Sint Maarten, and the Caribbean part of the Netherlands (the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba).

For Aruba:

The Common Court of Justice of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten is responsible for the enforcement of maintenance decisions in the first instance and in the appeal proceedings.

For Curacao:

The Common Court of Justice of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten is responsible for the enforcement of maintenance decisions in the first instance and in the appeal proceedings.

The courts of the first instance and the Court of Justice of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten are responsible for the enforcement of the maintenance decisions.

For the Caribbean part of the Netherlands (the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba):

The authorities of the European part of the Netherlands are also responsible for the Caribbean part of the Netherlands.
