Christine Pasquier Ciulla, Partner, and Mona Lagrange-Guezguez, Associate, have published an article on « The impact of the private international law reform in Monaco on marriage contracts, divorce and successions », in the AJ Famille review, April 2019, No 4, p 217.
Monaco’s private international law was recently codified in Law No 1.448 of 28 June 2017. This modernisation work covers a broad area, including personal status, patrimonial family law, property law, trust law. While the new private international law code enshrines certain solutions reached by Monaco courts, it also endorses new solutions that will modify professional practices and call for an individual review of asset organisation. It results in a certain alignement of european regulations in succession and matrimonial matters, as well as the true recognition of the principle of party autonomy, while retaining a certain monegasque particularism.
