Family law is the branch of civil law that regulates the legal relationships of persons connected by marriage, civil partnership, family and kinship. In addition, it regulates the legal representative functions that exist outside of kinship: Guardianship, guardianship and legal care.
Focal points of our advisory work in the legal field Family law have been compiled below.
Divorce law is an extremely lively matter, even if the occasion is rather less pleasant. It is subject to the constant change of social conditions.
At the latest when you are confronted with the topic of separation and divorce, divorce law also enters your life.
Divorce is a highly sensitive issue that also requires tact, especially when it comes to custody or maintenance. The parties involved are often at odds with each other on this issue. Confrontational course. This is where goal-oriented moderation is important.
Maintenance law regulates the financial compensation between persons who are close to each other and at least one of whom is not able to provide for his or her own living expenses.
In the case of so-called separation maintenance, on the other hand, the previous standard of living is decisive. Who is entitled to maintenance is regulated by law.
They can be children, spouses, ex-partners or parents. Unmarried couples may also be liable to pay maintenance to each other if, for example, a child has been born of the relationship.
Parental care is the right to raise and the duty to care for and provide for a minor child. It is regulated in sections 1626 to 1698b of the German Civil Code (BGB). The law divides parental care into three areas:
- personal care,
- the care for the assets and
- the legal representation of the child.
The parents' duty of maintenance is independent of this. They are also obliged to provide financially for their child.
Under a Marriage contract is understood to mean a contract under private law between two spouses in which they lay down individual rules for the marriage, but especially for the case of a possible divorce, which deviate from the legal regulation.
Marriage contracts often specify the matrimonial property regime and thus the division of assets after the dissolution of the marriage, the equalisation of pension claims as well as regulations on post-marital maintenance.
