Divorce And Family Law In Romania

Divorce procedure in Romania underwent reform with the 2011 New Civil Code. Divorce by agreement can be obtained at any time – there is no minimum separation period. There are three routes to divorce. Couples can go down the purely administrative route if they agree matters and there are no children. This is a straightforward procedure handled by a civil servant from the area in which the marriage took place. Alternatively a notary can grant the divorce if there is agreement on all matters including children issues.

If applying to a Romanian court for divorce, one of the grounds for divorce must be proved. One of these is that the petitioner suffers from an illness that makes continuing in the marriage impossible.

Unusually the Code provides protection for engaged couples. If an engagement is called off, the ‘guilty’ party (the one who decided to end the relationship) must compensate the other for any expenses related to the forthcoming marriage. Engagement gifts must also be returned.

‘JC’, Romania

“When I sought Julius’ help I was confused, angry and had no idea how to respond to a court summons issued against me in Romania. Julius was calm, clear and extremely helpful. He kept me updated on what I needed to do.

He was also very clear from the very beginning about the costs, and about the options that were available to me.

I very much appreciate his help and guidance in resolving this matter.”

VERY PROFESSIONAL . My initial telephone contact to this firm was handled very professionally. First impressions really do matter. The details of my enquiry were taken and I soon became eased to believe that I being listened to and relevant details were being noted. My subsequent initial assessment interview was just as thorough and professional, consistent with my previous experience. Choosing a solicitor to act on your behalf is a very important consideration. Although my case is still on going, I have every confidence and peace of mind that I will be concluded well.
