New Regulations on Matrimonial Property and Property of Registered Partnerships: Commentary


The enactment of Regulations 2016/1103 and 2016/1104, implementing enhanced cooperation in the area of jurisdiction, applicable law and the recognition and enforcement of decisions in matters of matrimonial property regimes and of the property consequences of registered partnerships, represents a significant step forward in the development of a European Private International Law in the field of Family and Successions Law.

The application of the application of these instruments from January the 29th 2019, is also going to deeply affect the autonomous Private International Law systems of those Member States which participate in such enhance cooperation proceeding.

A selected group of Spanish academics and legal practitioners (including, Lawyers, Judges, Notaries and Land Registers) published a profound analysis of those Regulations, as well as their coordination with other instruments in the field of Judicial Cooperation in Civil matters and its interaction with national provisions from participating Member States: see here.)

This book constitutes the first Spanish Commentary devoted to Regulations 2016/1103 and 2016/1104, prepared by the same experienced group of specialists, edited by Profs. Iglesias Buhigues and Palao Moreno (University of Valencia), who previously edited an aclaimed Commentary to the EU Successions Regulation 650/2012 (see  here).
