Division of joint property during the marriage

By default, joint property cannot be shared when the marriage is in progress. It is also not possible to dispose of or commit to the ordinance on participation in joint property which, in the event of termination of statutory joint liability, will be attributed to the spouse. A similar principle applies also to shares in individual objects constituting the joint property (Article 35 cryo).

However, if during the marriage the statutory community ceases, the division becomes permissible. The cessation of joint property takes place primarily through the conclusion of an intercity agreement with a notary public. In addition, this happens in the event of the incapacitation of one of the spouses or if the court introduces property separation. In such cases, the marriage continues, and despite this division is acceptable.
