Cancellation of a declaration of family residence

In certain situations, you can apply for the cancellation of a declaration of family residence, for example if:

  • you and your spouse both consent to the cancellation;
  • you have sold the property registered as your family residence with your spouse’s consent or with authorization from the court;
  • you and your spouse have obtained a judgment granting:

    • your divorce;
    • your legal separation;
    • the dissolution of your civil union;
    • the annulment of your marriage or civil union;

  • you and your spouse have signed a notarial contract dissolving your civil union;
  • your spouse has died.

The court may also order the cancellation of the registration if you and your spouse no longer live in the building you registered as your family residence.
