Divorce And Family Law In Slovenia

Most divorces in Slovenia are by agreement between the spouses. There is no equivalent of the requirement in England and Wales to prove fault. If there are children, parents must agree a parenting plan before a divorce is granted. Courts will then look at the agreement and decide whether or not it is in the interests of the children.

If the court does not accept the proposals or the parents cannot agree, a different divorce procedure must be used. This is referred to as ‘divorce on the basis of an action’.

An updated Family Code comes into force from 2019. Time will tell regarding its impact on the division of property following divorce. For the first time ‘marriage contracts’ or prenuptial agreements will be recognised and regulated by the new Code.

What our clients are saying:

‘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.”
