"Matrimonial Property and the Conflict of Laws"

The author examines provisions in the Matrimonial Property Act 1976 applicable to conflicts issues upon dissolution of marriage through separation with specific reference to: the international diversity of matrimonial property regimes; the scope of the Act in relation to movable and foreign immovable property; the uncertainty pervading common law conflict rules and their potential applicability to property falling outside the scope of the Act; and ante-nuptial agreements. The article highlights the tension between domestic policies and foreign law in transnational matrimonial property disputes.
