The Notaries of Europe have launched a special website setting out the law relating to property in marriage and registered partnerships within all 27 EU member states.

The site, which was launched with help from the European Commission, features information in a full 21 languages and is designed to provide legal guidance to the estimated 16 million international couples living within the EU. Many with property and financial assets in different countries face significant complications and uncertainty if they separate, divorce or one partner dies.

Topics covered include the overall consequences of divorce or separation within each legal regime; which law applies to the division of matrimonial or partnership property within each country; and the legal consequences of the death of one partner. Regular updates to the content of the site are promised.

Tilman Götte is President of the Council of the Notariats of the European Union. He said: “This project demonstrates the will of the Notaries of Europe to provide the best solution to the need for legal certainty experienced by couples inEurope, the forms of which are developing rapidly.”

The Notaries of Europe is an international organisation representing notaries in their dealings with European institutions.

The blog team at Stowe is a group of writers who share their advice on the wellbeing and emotional aspects of divorce or separation from personal experience. Guest contributors also regularly contribute to share their knowledge.
