Cyprus Family Law is mainly modelled on the Greek family law with influences from the Common Law.
Family Law Courts have jurisdiction over divorce proceedings, maintenance and property disputes, child custody and contact disputes, adoption proceedings and all other relevant matters.
The Family Courts of Cyprus have jurisdiction over the above disputes when at least one of the parties has been a resident of Cyprus for a period of more than six months.
Cyprus is a signatory to many major international treaties concerning family law matters including the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction and the Family Courts of Cyprus have jurisdiction over proceedings initiated by the above treaties.
