Final meeting Empowering European Families

On 26 and 27 April, the final meeting of the Empowering European Families research project took place in Vienna, of which Wendy Schrama is one of the two tractors. See the website for more information. The toolkits for notaries and lawyers to properly inform their international clients about the various possibilities within private international law for couples to make choices on the international level (choice of law and choice of forum) are explained in a simple way. The choices made by international couples under the family law of the EU Member States in matters of matrimonial property law and alimony law have also been identified. Various toolkits have been developed: for married couples, for registered partners and for couples who live together unmarried. The results (country reports and toolkits) will be published later this year.
