Statut personnel et union de droit local à Mayotte. Quelle visibilité pour le droit local ?

Abstract : Changes in the law in Mayotte have led to the application of the civil code law to marriages between persons of personal status. These weddings are celebrated by the civil officer in a manner very similar to those of marriages between persons of civil law status. Article 9 of Ordinance n°2010-590 of June 3, 2010 goes even further and makes the choice of civil code law to govern both the conditions of validity of the marriage and the question of its dissolution by divorce. Thus, the disappearance of the matrimonial scene of emblematic figures of local law such as the Cadi or the tutor wali openly raises the question of the loss of visibility of local law within the Mahorese society. In addition, the prohibition of traditional institutions such as repudiation and polygamy contributes to this erasure of local matrimonial law. This study tends to return the legal data and tries to nuance this finding.
