Family law is considered a separate branch in the field of law, which is separated from Civil law mainly because there is a difference in them in regulating the relations. According to this, the relations, according to Family law, are determined by the imperative norms of a country, thus, they are not open to the fulfillment of an individual will and thus an agreement among the subjects in a family relationship. However, this statement has become less credible with time. Its appli-cation has become more frequent in family law in the last 20 years and it has become a general feature of the law in almost every European country, which can be marked as privatization and contractualisation of family law.
