Break-ups and crisis in couples can have an impact on children, as well as other repercussions at an economic level that need to be regulated. In these instances, a regulatory agreement can be reached by mutual consent, or, in a contentious manner, by requesting judicial intervention.
The most common procedures are separations, divorces, and measures for de facto unions.
After a court decision has been obtained, the most usual legal procedures that can take place are: the modification of measures, and the enforcement of a sentence for non-payment of alimony or non-compliance with measures previously adopted.
Provisional measures, measures seeking the suspension of visiting arrangements or suspension/deprivation of parental authority, non-payment of pensions, suspension/non- compliance with visiting arrangements, filiation or contestation proceedings, adoption,liquidation of marital property, custody of pets, etc. can also be taken.
