Family relationships affect each of us whether it be with regard to the ones between spouses, children and parents or relatives. For this reason, family disputes are the most common category of civil disputes, but not the easiest in resolution. Such disputes may concern the establishment or contestation of paternity, the deprivation of the parental rights of one of the spouses, the dissolution of marriage, the division of spouses’ property, the recovery of alimony, the deprivation of parental rights, the determination of the place of residence of the child, the definition of the order of meetings with the child, and many other issues.
Due to globalization the number of marriages concluded between citizens of different states is growing rapidly.
