By Walter Pintens, Frédérique Ferrand, Katharina Boele-Woelki, Cristina Gonzalez Beilfuss, Maarit Jänterä-Jareborg, Nigel Lowe, Dieter Martiny

Three years after its establishment the CEFL presents its first Principles of European Family Law in the field of divorce and maintenance between former spouses. The Principles aim to bestow the most suitable means for the harmonisation of family laws in Europe. In this respect they may serve as a frame of reference for national, European and international legislatures alike. The Principles could considerably facilitate their task not only by virtue of the fact that the CEFL's in-depth and comprehensive comparative research is easily accesible but also because most of the rules have been drafted in a way legislatures normally consider to be appropriate.
