This chapter is divided into three parts covering, respectively, conflicts in the fields of property, marital property, and successions. The part on property begins with a discussion of the distinction between immovables and movables and the dominance of the situs rule in cases involving immovables. It concludes with an extensive discussion of conflicts involving cultural property, such as stolen antiquities and artwork. The marital property part covers problems arising when spouses domiciled in a separate property state move to a community property state, or vice versa, or when they live in one state and acquire immovable property in the other state. The part on successions covers both testate and intestate succession.
