The Family Global Guide provides country-specific Q&A guides on family law and practice worldwide. The Q&A gives a high level overview of key issues including jurisdiction and conflict of law; pre- and post-nuptial agreements; divorce, nullity, and judicial separation; children; surrogacy and adoption; cohabitation; family dispute resolution; civil partnership/same-sex marriage; and controversial areas and reform.
The guide is derived from Family Law (2nd edition), European Lawyer Reference, which was published in association with the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (IAML).
