Family Law

The company specializes in the out-of-court and judicial resolution of family law disputes by submitting applications/lawsuits for the assignment of custody and the awarding of maintenance for minor and adult children, contested divorce proceedings and consensual divorces. At the same time, the company’s partners have many years of experience in paternity infringement lawsuits and judicial recognition of a child.

It is a fact that most of the time family disputes require delicate handling and their successful outcome is based, first, on the relationship of trust that develops between the client and the lawyer and then on the development of a strategic plan in order for the court to form a complete picture on the issue of who the spouse is , really, to blame for the breakup of the married life, which parent is really suitable for entrusting the exercise of custody to him, as well as what is the real financial situation of the person liable for maintenance.

The company’s legal team, in cases where the debtor tries to expropriate his assets to frustrate the satisfaction of the creditor, is extensively engaged in the real security of the beneficiary in alimony with the registration of a pre-note, the conservatory seizure of his movable and immovable property debtor, the filing of a burglary action with the purpose of overturning the transfer of real estate, and criminally by filing lawsuits and showing support for a charge for the offense of breaching the maintenance obligation. In all these cases our experience has shown that continuous pressure through judicial and extrajudicial remedies is sometimes the only way to secure the claims of our principals.

After the resolution 2079/2015 of the Council of Europe, which recommended to the member states of the European Union the legislative adoption of joint parental care (joint parenting/joint custody/system of alternating residence) we consciously undertake and promote cases that they control as anachronistic and unconstitutional the, by jurisprudential custom, unfortunately, accepted cases of the mother’s bio-social superiority, the lack of agreement between the parents and the stable residence, mainly from the point of view of the effects of the non-application of joint parenting on the children’s mental well-being.

We believe that the principle of joint custody/alternating residence, where the child secures at least 40% of his time with each parent, through relevant court decisions, which have already begun to stir the stagnant, unscientific jurisprudential waters, will be introduced very quickly and in our country, as it has been introduced into the family law of most EU member states, in accordance with the requirements of the United Nations International Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

Furthermore, we face head on the projection of unreasonable nutritional claims, which ultimately constitute a criterion for not awarding the custody of the child to the parent who uses the child’s nutritional right as an unfair lever to ensure his well-being while having custody of him.

In particular, our company deals at a judicial and advisory level with:
– claims between the spouses in the assets acquired during the marriage,
– filing divorce proceedings (for reasons of strong shock, two years of separation),
– submission of requests for injunctive measures for the relocation of one spouse in case of break-up of the married life,
– submission of lawsuits and requests for injunctive measures to determine the contribution of one spouse to the nutritional needs of the other spouse and the children,
– submission of lawsuits and requests for injunctive measures for the assignment of the exercise of custody and the regulation of the right of communication.

Finally, the firm deals with contemporary international family law issues, including cross-border child abduction cases and the freedom of movement of same-sex families in Europe.
The ideal in family disputes, especially, is for there to be a convergence of parents’ views. The reality, however, is usually different and the search for a solution through the court system becomes necessary.
