International Family Law
International family law plays an increasingly important role as the number of bi-national marriages grows. At the same time, however, each state has its own regulations on international family law.
This often results in issues when multinational marriages end. Therefore, it is questionable what the applicable law should be for a divorce and its consequential matters. Such matters include property law, child custody, alimony, visitation rights, and pension rights equalization. In particular, the custody and visiting rights for child or children are specially relevant amongst the international aspects of bi-national marriages.
In these often emotionally charged situations, it is important to have a reliable and experienced lawyer on one's side, who perfectly understands both the national and international family law. Not least because foreign relations demand the correct application and analysis of multiple national and international rules. To that end, our lawyers provide comprehensive advice and take all time necessary to understand your personal situation.
In case of bi-national marriages, however, it is also possible to adopt certain precautionary measures through a prenuptial agreement. This can be accomplished through the choice of applicable law, which results in increased security and reduced stress from the outset. The attorneys of MTR Rechtsanwälte advice you on every detail.
