The Notaries of Europe with the support of the European Commission have launched a very helpful website for separating international/European couples to help them gain access to comprehensive and reliable information on the complex area of law relating to their separation in 21 different languages.

This is a very useful tool to help people to make use of their rights as European Citizens. The website clarifies the different applicable laws on matrimonial property regimes and property consequences of registered partnerships affecting the separating couple in each European Country. Please see the press release on the Notaries for Europe website here for more information.

If you are contemplating separation or Divorce and either or both of you are European Citizens, this website will help you by answering  the following questions for the 27 EU Countries:

• 1 Which law applies?
• 2 Is there a statutory matrimonial property regime and if so, what does it provide?
• 3 How can the spouses arrange their property regime?
• 4 Can or must the matrimonial property regime be registered?
• 5 What are the consequences of Divorce/separation?
• 6 What are the consequences of death?
• 7 Does your national law provide a special matrimonial property regime for multi-national couples?
• 8 What does the law provide for the property of registered and non-registered partners?
• 9 Which is the competent authority to turn to in cases of disputes and other legal issues?

If you are considering separation or Divorce,  please in the first instance, give consideration to the out of Court options to resolving any disagreements that you may have either family mediation or in more complex cases, consideration should be given to the collaborative approach, which allows legal advice during meetings.

  1. Admiring the dedication you put into your site and in depth information you provide.

    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated
    rehashed information. Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your
    RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let
    me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue
    is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.
