This paper aims to discuss the harmonization of family regulations at European level and also to analyse to what extent the Principles of European Family Law regarding Divorce have been included in the family regulations at national level. In order to reach the objectives, there were two research methods that have been used: document analysis and comperative research. At European level there is no definition of „family” and this fact makes the concept of family very difficult to define. Considering the various sociological, anthropological, historical and religious factors, the definition and the meaning attributed to this institution differs from state to state. The analysis has reveald that in the last decade there is a growing interest for harmonisation in the field of family law. It has also revelaed that, at national level, steps have been made in order to integrate the european principles in the national regulations. The importance of this study is that has provided detailed information of the European norms and also a through analysis about the national regulation and the improvements that can be made.
