Inheritance Law /
Inheritance law governs the transfer of assets upon death. Someone can become an heir either through the legal succession (e.g., as a close relative) or through a testamentary disposition (e.g., a will). The testator generally has the freedom to determine who will receive their estate. However, this testamentary freedom is limited by forced heirship rules, which aim to secure a minimum share (half of the statutory inheritance share) of the estate for descendants (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren) and the surviving spouse or registered partner.
Inheritance law can involve numerous complex issues. Particularly in cases involving pre-death gifts, multiple heirs, insufficient assets, or multiple testamentary dispositions and strained relationships among potential heirs, it is advisable to seek legal advice and guidance in estate proceedings. We are happy to assist you in drafting a will or in preparing advance directives such as living wills or powers of attorney.
Divorce and Alimony Law
Family law is a particularly sensitive area of law that requires not only legal expertise but also social competence. Family law covers marriage law, parental rights and obligations, and rights related to custody and adult representation.
Marriage law includes provisions for the mutual duties during a valid marriage as well as regulations regarding the dissolution of the marriage (divorce) and the division of marital property. Child custody and parental rights involve questions of paternity, naming rights, child support, visitation rights, and custody.
In addition to numerous procedural aspects that require legal representation, contract drafting (prenuptial agreements, divorce settlement agreements, adoption agreements, etc.) also plays a significant role in family law. We are here to represent your interests in family law matters. We can assist you in both amicable and contentious divorce proceedings.
