The Family Guidance Department was created on 10.10.1998, aiming at addressing family disputes and amicably settling them and the reunification of the family by friendly means, and helping the parties to reach a family binding agreement that preserves the respective rights without resorting to the courts, and end their differences by mutual agreement stating clearly the family rights and duties. When this fails, the applications shall be referred to the competent court at the request of the parties or one of them.
