The diverse area of family law is very much characterised by its interpersonal nature. For this reason, our general approach in all cases is first to find an amicable solution for the parties, out of court. In particular the welfare of the children involved is of paramount importance. For this reason, it is imperative that in divorce cases, marriages are dissolved as amicably, and at as low a cost, as possible. Settlements out of court of family law disputes are faster, more efficient and more cost-effective than court proceedings. If, however, an amicable solution is not possible, we will represent you in court, too, using all of our practical experience to assert your interests.
German family law is derived primarily from The German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch) and can be difficult for those not in the legal field to follow. Some issues such as international child abduction law and other cases with an international aspect may also have other sources of law playing a role. Therefore an experienced and knowledgeable partner is indispensable when it comes to issues in the field of family law.
