Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

In the event of a separation, the rules governing the partition of the family patrimony take precedence over the stipulations of the matrimonial regime.  
 
If you are married or in a civil union, your matrimonial regime or civil union regime defines how your property is divided up following a divorce or separation.
