  • Status is not correct
  • Status is not correct "Following the Romanian Coman judgment of the CJEU in June, the Slovak authorities stated that “as of 1 January 2012, the law on the residency of foreigners is valid, part of which is the directive on the law of EU citizens and their family members to move freely and stay on the territory of member states.” This means that a family member of an EU citizen can enjoy the right to reside in Slovakia, even if they accompanied their spouse before the Coman ruling. Meanwhile, the Slovak Justice Ministry also stated in June that Slovak law does not recognize a registered partnership or same-sex marriage. The Slovak Constitution stipulates that marriage is a unique bond between a man and a woman. https://spectator.sme.sk/c/20843250/same-sex-married-couples-have-the-right-to-stay-in-slovakia.html"
