This comprehensive Commentary provides an in-depth, article-by-article analysis of the Rome III Regulation, the uniform rules adopted by the EU to determine the law applicable to cross-border divorce and legal separation. Disputes on family matters form part of everyday litigation in the EU, with around 140,000 international divorces per year; this Commentary offers a clear legal understanding of the regulation that governs this increasingly significant area of family law.

Written by a team of renowned experts on private international law in relation to family matters, chapters contextualise and examine the provisions of the regulation, with clear insight into the rationale behind the text. The contributors engage critically with each article, analysing Rome III's overall effectiveness and offering a balanced critique from a variety of European perspectives.

Private international law scholars and practitioners alike will find this Commentary an incisive and useful point of reference. It will be of particular interest to those working in family law, including judges, lawyers, public notaries and family mediators, as well as graduate students looking for in-depth knowledge of the subject.
