Divorce lawyers in Munich - recommendations

63 posts in this topic

Best way to go is the Embassy or Consulate. But if not I can highly recommend you RAe Dr. Rupprecht und Kollegen, Nördliche Auffahrtsallee 19, 80638 München, Phone: 089/159145-0. Very good lawyers and not too expensive. They all speak english (I guess).

Thanks, however she was hoping for a personal recommendation, if possible, instead of starting from scratch.

My lawyer was Antonio Campanella (Sendlinger Str. 13, 80331;

089 547191-0; kanzlei@ra-campanella.de). Hers was Jutta Bartling (Sonnenstrasse 32, 80331; 089-260 56 39). Mine was good and quite fair with me but hers did, I think, a better job. I was screwed royally by a pre-nup and certain other circumstances. Bartling is well-known for feminist stuff and specialises/d in domestic violence.

Hello TTers, after a long time out in the prairie. Some of you may remember me, I haven't posted that often...

Right now I am taking the plunge and getting divorced. I am in dire need of a good, internationallly experienced, divorce lawyer (preferrably American/German) here in Munich, who can advise my husband and me on anything and everything (we have three kids, property, you name it, we need advice on it!) I have checked the forum for past links etc, but if anybody has any current input I would greatly appreciate it. Just PM me anytime. Thanks for your help... :unsure:

Oh, man, I'm sorry. You're in for a hard time ahead. You have my sympathy. Divorce is hell.

I think most lawyers will refuse to represent you both - though it does sound like a reasonable way to avoid conflict. I'm not even sure it's allowed. On the other hand, your separate lawyers will usually try to instigate a War of the Roses type brawl over bullshit which you must try to hinder by dealing with your ex directly as much as possible.

Go to the US embassy for a list of lawyers. My divorce is too long ago now, and I wouldn't really recommend the lawyyer I used anyway.

Is this an amicable divorce? It seems so from the way you write it. If not, I can give you the name of my ex-wife's lawyer who made it possible for my ex- to completely ruin me and take all the money.

 

woof.

Thanks, Woof...it's been very amicable up until now, I just don't want to make any mistakes I might regret later and get everything down in black and white so that both worlds are happy...

Up until now, if you are in agreement with your spouse, everything is easy, quick, undirty and maybe cheap (I don' t know yet, for sure!!!)

That table cannot be correct. Divorce is very expensive in Germany. Ask a few divorcees who are still paying off their debts. Surely it's cheaper and easier to get divorced in the States.

This month's issue of Munich Found has an article on divorce in Germany. No suggestions of lawyer names, just the procedure one needs to go through.

Hi Toytown,

 

Does anyone know of any licensed California marriage/divorce lawyers rolling around Munich? I realize it's a rather unusual and specific request.

 

My husband and I are putting a pre-nup together. We have a good DE lawyer, but want to talk to a US (preferably CA) lawyer who can tell us how a US court would interpret the document. (Yes, it's already translated.)

 

Any name/numbers would be appreciated. We've already worked through many of the names on the US consulate website without much luck. Most of them, seem to us, to be Germans who speak English and maybe did an internship in the States but have yet to find one who has passed the bar and feels up to date. Oder...?

One of my friends who is a non-EU citizen but a German PR has some marital problems. Husband has decided to run off to Thailand to "marry" his mistress. He does not want a divorce as he does not want to pay child support. They have been married for 18 years and they have 3 children who are in school. My friend wants a divorce and has only about 3 months to file for one. However, hubby has been busy transferring money over to the mistress and nearly all is gone. The account is in his sole name. My friend was told that if hubby leaves Germany, she is unable to do anything anymore.

 

They are currently living with the German's mother. They have no property here.

 

She was told that she would need an Ausland divorce solicitor(?). Would anyone know of a good and efficient one?

 

Please do not make any unwanted or sarcastic comments here, this is a thread where real advice is really needed.

 

Thanks.

If she has the guy's valid address in Thailand that the German court can deliver summons etc. to she won't have too much trouble. If he does not agree to a divorce they have to live at least 1 year apart to prove that the eheliche Gemeinschaft (connubial community) no longer exists and that there are insuperable differences. Where does the 3 months' thing come from?

Thanks sarabyrd. I have no idea where the 3 months thingy came from and neither does she.

 

1 year?? Oh dear, that's gonna be tough on her and the kids as they would have absolutely no money. Knowing Thai women (not all of them but the ones that steal other people's husband), the money will be all gone by then. She just wants him for the money, keeps asking him to buy her land, build a house and set up a bar in Phuket. They will never be successful there. He would not have any means to pay child support. He is 55, so I doubt he can find a job in TH.

If she can prove that the community already no longer exists she may be eligible for support pre-payments from the Jugendamt. The Jugendamt then turns around and tries for reimbursement from the guy. Sound like a real sweetheart, he does. Give me a couple hours to have dinner, do the ironing and have a bath and I'll research their site. What nationality is she?
