Abstract

Divorce and court go together like a horse and carriage, but that may be changing. Recently, France allowed couples to contract into a divorce without any judicial involvement. This Article examines the implications for American courts recognizing divorces from France and whether the United States will join the non-judicial divorce movement.

Keywords: family law, domestic relations, comparative law, comparative family law, divorce, judicial divorce, non-judicial divorce
