Separation Agreement In Deutsch
In addition to child support, spouses are also required to pay child support to dependent children when a spouse is unable to support himself or her after separation. But in some cases, the spouses are simply not willing or able to reach an amicable solution. In such a case, the German Family Court will have to rule on every issue, from the separation of pensions and property, to pension splitting and everything related to children. Of course, it can take months or even years. This is also the reason for the different legal terminology in divorce cases in Germany compared to normal civil procedures (participants instead of party, request instead of complaint, etc.). Therefore, if the spouses still speak reasonably, a German divorce can be very fast and relatively stress-free. This is particularly the case where both parties or, to use the correct terminology, both parties to the divorce are prepared to agree on financial issues and custody and custody issues in a separate subsidiary agreement, known as the separation and divorce agreement. If a spouse does not wish to wait for a faster divorce, i.e. the one-year (or three-year) separation period, that spouse can make one of the three legal exceptions to the mandatory separation period principle. These difficult cases (unacceptable cases) that allow for a quicker divorce, for example.
B in cases of physical or psychological abuse, are exposed to question 1565, para. 2 and 1568 BGB.

An important part of the divorce or separation procedure is the allocation of pension funds, dependent pensions and child custody. Our firm specializes in Us-German and Anglo-German legal affairs.
