The transformation of divorce procedure in Europe

Di SlaÐana Aras Kramar -

In present-day Europe, there is a growing interest in question of dejudicialization of divorce procedure. First, it can be underlined the growing use of family mediation as a method of solving the disputes that come together with divorce. Secondly, there is a new tendency of arbitration in disputes connected with divorce, first of all property and economic disputes, in some European countries. Thirdly, there is a growing tendency of dejudicialization of the sole divorce by introducing the civil law notaries and the administrative bodies as a forum for solving the divorce (and the matters connected with divorce). Last but not least, the electronic divorce and the use of the new technologies are taking floor in Europe. The divorce of a marriage before the civil law notary or an administrative body (usually civil registry body) is in the focus of the paper.
