Joint notarial declaration
A civil union can be dissolved by a joint declaration made before a notary, on two conditions:
- The spouses have settled all the consequences of their separation in an agreement;
- The interests of any children the two spouses have had together are not at stake; in this case, dissolution can only be granted by a court.
The declaration and agreement must be recorded in a notarial document. They have the same effect as a judgment granting the dissolution of a civil union from the date on which they are signed before the notary.
