Marriage and family law

In marriage and family law, notaries are responsible for the certification of marriage contracts, civil partnership contracts, divorce agreements, adoptions and other measures involving child law (e.g. acknowledgement of paternity). Consultancy on legal regulations and their consequences in divorce cases are particularly recommended before marriage. The legal model is based on a certain type of marriage which is often no longer a legal reality. This can lead to unpleasant surprises in divorce cases. We will comprehensively inform you of the legal situation and, if necessary, draft a tailor-made marriage contract adjusted to your living situation. The same applies for same-sex partners who wish to establish a civil partnership. If a marriage fails, a divorce agreement stipulating a notary’s intervention as a neutral authority can help avoid long, costly legal disputes.
