Registered Partnerships

(PACS, Civil Partnerships)

  • Conclusion
  • Modification

The status of an unmarried opposite or same-sex couple raises several issues sometimes ensuing delicate or difficult consequences : since 29 January 2019, the European Regulation on the estate and inheritance of registered partnerships only applies in about twenty states of the European Union.

When a couple leaves the state where the partnership was registered or their state of residency, the receiving state’s legal system might not recognise their status or meet their expectations.

Me REGA can advise you and offer you his expertise to handle the consequences to your personal situation in an international context.

Thus, these problematics directly involve international couples committed to a, French PACS, a British Civil Partnership, a Belgian contract of legal cohabitation, a Spanish registered partnership (pareja de hecho), (according to the Spanish Autonomous Regional Community), in a German partnership (Lebenspartnerschaftsgesetz (LPartG)), or a Dutch or Swiss partnership.

You and your partner form an unmarried international couple? Me REGA can accompany you in different investment, transmission and mutual protection strategies, according to your personal expectations and goals.
