The family courts have exclusive jurisdiction to determine petitions for divorce, custody of children, maintenance and property disputes between spouses where the parties are members of the Greek Orthodox Church.
If the parties belong to one of the other religious groups jurisdiction is vested in the Family Court for Religious Groups.
There are 3 Family Courts, one for Nicosia and Kyrenia, one for Limassol and Paphos and one for Larnaca and Famagusta. There is also one Family Court for Religious Groups, based in Nicosia.
Cases are heard and determined by a single judge, except divorce petitions which are heard and determined by a court composed of three judges.
