In family law practice, they deal daily with the law of marriage / civil partnership , divorce , parental custody, as well as the care and maintenance . A special feature of family law is certainly that one area is closely linked to the other – so in a divorce usually also the issues of custody and maintenance must be clarified. In addition, family law is closely interwoven with inheritance law and we are thus constantly active across territories.

The registered civil partnership is legally the same as marriage. Therefore, for the sake of simplicity, only marriage will be discussed below, these statements referring at the same time to same-sex civil partnership.

Even before entering into marriage, legally relevant questions can arise, especially those concerning the financial situation of the spouse. Thus, by marriage contract, which can be concluded before or during the marriage, can be regulated in which matrimonial property the spouses want to live together. If the matrimonial property is not agreed by the spouses, by law, the matrimonial property occurs. In this case, the property or the property of the spouses, which they had before the marriage began, remain the sole property of the respective spouse. Everything that the spouses earn during the marriage (gain) is distributed equally to both in case of divorce.
