for minors in 22 European countries

Protective measures for Minors in 22 European countries
The Notaries of Europe are opening today a new section dedicated to protective measures for minors on their information website: The Vulnerable in Europe . The website, developed with European Commission support and available in three languages (English, French and German), provides information on the laws of the 22 countries with the notarial system.
Protecting vulnerable minors and adults has become a real challenge for society. Increasingly, people requiring protection need to travel, be looked after or are hospitalised in a Member State other than that of their habitual residence. Like their family, their assets can be spread across several States. This tendency affects minors and the elderly, but also people who are victims of an accident or illness, people with disabilities, etc. The website on “The Vulnerable in Europe” is therefore a precious tool for citizens wishing to find out more about the protective instruments available to them.
Me Jean Tarrade, the President of the Council of the Notariats of the European Union, declared on this occasion:
The mobility of citizens and their families is a reality in Europe today. The Notaries of Europe are taking action to provide more information on the various national legislations. Along the same lines as the Successions Europe and Couples in Europe websites, which have been visited several million times to date, we intend to focus our work on raising awareness with this website on the vulnerable, to which we have added a section entirely dedicated to minors
