Third Working Group Meeting of Workstream 2 will take place in Vienna

06.03.2017

The 3rd Working Group meeting of the 2nd Workstream, dealing with substantive law issues, will take place from 12th - 14th March 2017.

Leading European experts in the field of substantive family law will meet in Vienna at the premises of the European Law Institute in order to continue to draft a model agreement for married couples as well as for registered partners. The idea is that this model agreement on matrimonial property and partnership property issues, maintenance claims and pension rights will be enforceable in as many Member States as possible. Important work regarding these templates was already conducted at the last meeting in January, and the Working Group will take these findings into consideration at the March meeting.
