Family law

A marriage or partnership is one of the most important decisions in life. We help to question the legal provisions of family law and examine together with you whether precautionary contractual arrangements make sense for the specific individual case. In cases of separation or divorce, we help to avoid or settle disputes by means of a balanced notarial agreement.

A special focus in family law is on precautionary documents for accident, illness and old age (general and precautionary powers of attorney and living wills).
