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

In accordance with the general rules of jurisdiction, Slovenian courts have international jurisdiction for disputes over matrimonial property if the defendant has his/her permanent residence in the Republic of Slovenia. If the defendant has no permanent residence in any other country, the jurisdiction can also be based on his/her temporary residence in Slovenia (Art. 48 of the Private International Law and Procedure Act). If disputes over matrimonial property concern property which is located in the Republic of Slovenia, a Slovenian court has jurisdiction even if the defendant does not have a residence in the Republic of Slovenia. If the majority of the property is located in the Republic of Slovenia and the rest is located abroad, the court can decide on the property that is located abroad only when it decides on the property located in the Republic of Slovenia and only when the defendant agrees to this (Art. 67 of the Private International Law and Procedure Act).
