The ELI Family Law Working Team meets for the second time in Utrecht, 21-22 March

A two-day meeting of the ELI Project “Empowering European Families - Towards More Party Autonomy in European Family and Succession Law” is taking place in Utrecht on 21-22 March. This is the second meeting organised in the framework of the project, with the first one held in Vienna, on 11 January.

After the finalisation of the questionnaire for Workstream 1 concerning the Choice of Court, Choice of Law, Submission to Family Mediation, the Working Team is now working to complete the second questionnaire intended for Workstream 2. The questionnaire constitutes the essential part of the two-day meeting in Utrecht along with other discussions on the model dispositions to be developed during Workstream 2. The Working Team is also planning to discuss some important issues pertaining to the upcoming second meeting on the Workstream 1, which is taking place on 10-11 April in Utrecht.

The aim of the project is to create European model dispositions, agreements and information sheets that will reduce the complexity and uncertainty that international couples in the EU are faced with. The project is organised into three Workstreams, which will produce one-stop shop solutions for married couples (Workstream 1), registered partners (Workstream 2) and individuals in informal relationships (Workstream 3).
