How to efficiently instruct a German Family Lawyer
If a marriage goes sour and one spouse finally decides to ask a lawyer for advice, the client is usually rather emotional and nervous, especially when children are involved and the parents cannot agree amicably on where and with whom the children shall live for the time being. Thus, the client wants a reliable assessment of the legal situation. And he or she wants these answers fast. Things are usually even more stressful and complicated in an international setting, i.e. if the spouses have different nationalities and possibly even places or residence in different countries.
In order to speed up this process and to enable our law firm to consider all relevant facts of such international family law cases, we have developed client questionnaires for such German or cross-border separation, divorce and child custody matters in English language.
The forms are available for download on our law firm website.
Should you need advice or legal representation in a British-German or American-German divorce or child custody matter, our German and English lawyers will be glad to help.
