Rasic & Partners law firm


In our practice, we have encountered various types of disputes concerning family
law, from divorce, alimony, the exercise of parental rights, maintenance of adults,
and maintenance of married/common-law partners after the termination of
marriage/common-law union.
First of all, these are sensitive issues and disputes which differ greatly from each
other and require maximum dedication and commitment from the attorney acting in
the case.
In each of the mentioned cases, the attorney must act analytically, professionally,
and objectively.

The attorneys employed at Rasic & Partners law firm look at every dispute and every situation through the expertise of each attorney individually, but in the end,
they give a joint and unique answer and solution to all the questions that arise.
Unquestionably, the successful conclusion of a family dispute in some cases largely
depends on the expertise, dedication, and work of an attorney. In addition to
numerous cases in the field of family law, our law office provides its associates
with additional education in this sensitive legal area.

Attorneys from our law office are closely specialized in the field of international
family law, i.e. areas where we encounter the foreign element.


Divorce is, according to the experiences of many, one of the most difficult and important issues that you may encounter in your life. In this regard, our law firm Rasic & Partners advises you to hire an attorney (a divorce attorney) during a divorce, keeping in mind all the consequences that may arise after the divorce, which primarily concern your rights regarding custody and obligations towards the child, as well as rights and obligations regarding the common property of the spouses and their division after the termination of the partnership.

Rasic & Partners law firm represents and advises clients in the following cases from this area of family law:
- Divorce by agreement
- Divorce lawsuit
- Alimony proceedings
- International divorce
- Property distribution
- Child custody

Divorce - more details


Keeping in mind the increasing migration of people, our lawyers encounter more
and more procedures in which some foreign element is involved.
Family disputes from the expertise of our activity, which include divorce, alimony, and custody of a child, are complex in themselves and require a lot of attorney's time and commitment.

However, when we add the foreign element, things become much more complicated and require an extremely high level of knowledge and experience from an attorney for a successful solution.
Attorneys from the Rasic & Partners law firm deal with disputes with international elements daily, keeping in mind that citizens of the Republic of Serbia go to countries all over Europe and the world.

This gives us the right to say that we successfully represent clients in all countries of the former Yugoslavia and Europe in the field of family law.


Certainly one of the most sensitive issues related to the termination of a marital or non-marital union is entrusting the child to one of the parents. When talking about custody, there are two types of custody arrangements:

Joint exercise of parental rights

Parents jointly exercise parental rights when they live together, in a marriage or cohabitation, or when such a model is possible even though they are divorced or no longer together.

Independent exercise of parental rights

A parent exercises parental rights independently when, after civil proceedings, the court recognized his/her right to exercise parental rights independently.
In case one parent exercises parental rights independently, the other parent has the right to maintain contact with the child based on a previously determined model of visitation.


The issue of alimony, i.e. child support, is also closely related to divorce and custody of the child. Legal support is of existential importance for the recipient, as well as for the provider of alimony. When the parents are separated, the question of child support arises. The amount of alimony is determined by the court.

Of course, the amount of alimony can be changed over time, again on the basis of a court decision, in cases where there are life changes in terms of the needs of the child and the possibilities of the parents.

Seen from the legislator's point of view, failure to provide maintenance, i.e. alimony is prescribed as a criminal offense punishable by imprisonment for up to 2 years.
However, although society often talks about child support after divorce or termination of cohabitation, a very important issue in terms of legal support is the obligation to support parents or ex-marital or cohabiting partners.
