The MATRIMONIAL REGIME IN CAMEROON governs family law issues in Cameroon. In a contested family law case, most people understand that hiring a skilled attorney will provide an advantage. An Attorney can find asset or income the other party to hide, present arguments regarding child support and visitation and even take the case to trial if settlement talks fail. Attorney representation is just as crucial in uncontested cases, however. Without it, a party is vulnerable and can unknowingly waive important legal rights.

Family law also involves the prevention of physical and emotional abuse. The potential for domestic abuse is not limited to relationship between current or former spouses and their children. Cameroonian Judges will not hesitate to assert jurisdiction to protect an elderly family member, someone in a dating relationship or even roommate. When allegation of abuse is made, the court will typically issue a restraining order to prevent further contact.
