Summary/Abstract: This paper combines elements of general theory of law, elements of comparative law and European Union law. Currently, we are seeing some fascinating challenges for the rights and freedoms in the European Union. Creating a united Europe raises a delicate problem - compatibility of national values and those of the European Union. Unfortunately, the twenty-eight national identities are threatened by this process so that we wonder, on the other hand, if the peoples of Europe are prepared to give up elements of their specificity and embrace unity in diversity. Perhaps European Union law, which is characterized by multilingualism and multi juridism be considered a new type of law, appeared in view the laws of the world? Only to the extent that the European Union is based on a legal will self and the principles and values that are within the eternal law,both the rationale individual and national identity of the Member States, it is possible unity in diversity and hence there is a new family law. The importance of theoretical and applicative value of this study presents practical relevance for specialists in the field, who work in the judiciary or in the national public administration, and more.
