BARCIA LEHMANN, Rodrigo and RIVEROS FERRADA, Carolina. The Non-Patrimonial Nature of Economic Compensation and its Waiving. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2011, n.37, pp. 93-113. ISSN 0718-6851. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512011000200002.
Financial compensation is an intangible and post-matrimonial right, function of which is mainly aimed at indemnifying the party in question and, based on some other assumptions, has a complementary function or a function to exclusively provide assistance. This work applies said thesis to the waiver of financial compensation and sets inflexible solutions apart; it also criticizes the traditional civil Law solutions, away from a strongly analytic family Law and based on its own inherent principles, which makes it different from other areas of the Private Law.
