Abstract

BARCIA LEHMANN, Rodrigo  and  RIVEROS FERRADA, Carolina. THE NON-PATRIMONIAL NATURE OF ECONOMIC COMPENSATION . Rev. chil. derecho [online]. 2011, vol.38, n.2, pp.249-278. ISSN 0718-3437.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34372011000200004.

This article shows that "economic compensation" ought to be understood as a family law institution. "Economic compensation" is a non-patrimonial right that arises from a marriage annulment or divorce, so it is essentially a postnuptial right. An indemnifying role of "economic compensation" does not preclude an assisting role also, which is, in some cases, both complimentary and exclusive to determine its " quantum ". The basis for this compensation lays not only on the legal principle that affords protection to a weaker spouse, but first and foremost, in the protection of the family, which is an institution guaranteed by the Constitution in the Chilean legal system.

Keywords : economic compensation; marriage.
