A couple had married in Spain where they had signed Marriage Articles, Capitulaciones Matrimoniales
; sometime after that they moved to the UK and started divorce proceedings.
There are financial regimens in Spain. The Marriage Articles will indicate which financial regimen will regulate the marriage and therefore this arrangement has to be taken into account if the spouses decide to get divorced.
The official translation of the Marriage Articles confirmed that the husband and wife had agreed that the marriage would be regulated by the financial regime of separate ownership of matrimonial assets and this was very important for the judge to make a decision regarding the financial arrangements when passing judgement. The official translations of the Spanish marriage certificate and the Libro de Familia
, a record in which stamped copies of the marriage, birth of children, etc, are entered for official purposes, were also submitted.
