Marriage, registered partnerships, cohabitation and children
The dissolution of a common household, whether it takes place by divorce or by the termination of cohabitation, may entail many kinds of legal problems. The question how the common property is to be shared often has considerable financial impact for the partners. It is possible to prepare for such situations in advance by drawing up a marital property agreement or a testament.
