Greece praised for adopting EU divorce regulations

The European Commission on Friday issued an announcement praising Greece for adopting legislation that allows couples of different nationalities in the European Union who are seeking a divorce to choose whose country’s laws they will choose to adopt during the proceedings.

“With almost 1 million divorces in 2009, this solution helps couples of different nationalities… and protects them from complicated, lengthy and painful procedures,” the EC’s statement said.
