9 Which is the competent authority to turn to in cases of disputes and other legal issues?

Outside the scope of application of Regulation 2201/2003, according to the provisions on international jurisdiction of the Romanian Law on Private International Law No. 105/1992, Romanian Courts have exclusive competence to deal with dissolution, nullity, and annulment of marriages and with other disputes among spouses (excepting those related to immovable property located abroad) if at the date of the claim both spouses have their domicile (“domicile” is the place declared by a person as being his/her main dwelling) in Romania and one of them is a Romanian national or a person without citizenship. Romanian courts are also competent to deal with all matters related to immovable property located in Romania.
