Matrimonial Property

The Commission is also working on a legislative proposal on the private international law rules relating to Matrimonial Property.


The Bar responded to the 2006 consultation on same, and remains of the view that a proposal as envisaged by the Commission could have no effect in the UK, given our very different approach to property rights in the matrimonial context. Accordingly, the Bar is currently brainstorming with members of the judiciary and other interested UK stakeholders to try to identify creative solutions that could be suggested to the EU legislator.
