Specialist lawyers for family law - Lawyers for custody law
The lawyers and family law specialists at our law firm will advise and support you in all matters relating to parental custody and the organisation of childcare after a separation. Since 1998, a divorce no longer automatically leads to a decision on parental custody, but joint custody remains in place for the time being.
Interests of the children
When parents separate, the interests of the children are always affected. In this situation, it is difficult for a child to reconcile these needs with the circumstances. On the one hand, they want to maintain a close relationship with both parents. On the other hand, there is the desire for freedom from conflict.
Our child custody lawyers often see children become the subject of parental disputes - unintentionally by all parties. On the part of the parents, the fear of dwindling influence on the child's upbringing and emotional connection are often the reasons behind a superficial custody dispute.
Consultation with one of our lawyers includes the various models for custody and access rights, particularly in this sensitive area. Clients are often not even aware of some of the options that also fulfil the interests of the child as far as possible. Residential, alternating or nest models are concepts that have developed over the years and provide basic guidance in this challenging situation.
The specialised lawyers for family law at Schneider, Stein und Partner are your lawyers for custody law and will help you to find the best legal solution for the new life situation of you and your children.
Custody for unmarried parents
Our family law specialists are also the right people for unmarried parents to contact when it comes to organising custody on the occasion of the birth of a joint child or questions of parental custody in the event of separation. If the parents are not married when the child is born, they are not already entitled to joint custody by law. However, there are various ways to obtain joint custody or sole custody for the father. Otherwise, the mother has sole custody.
