Benin Code of Persons and Family

This Code of Persons and Family was enacted in 2004 and is usually cited as the 2004 Code of Persons and Family. However, there may also be citations to the same law as the 2002 Code of Persons and Family. This is likely because the National Assembly passed the law in 2002, but then the President signed the law in 2004.
