German Legal Services

Carolin Schulz-Burgess, German Attorney


Welcome to German Legal Services

Since 2006, German Legal Services has provided personalized legal help to individuals and
families in German civil law cases involving divorce; child custody, visitation, and support;
and inheritance.

We save you the time, trouble, and expense of trying to settle your German legal issues alone, and often from abroad, in an unfamiliar court system.

We ensure that the confusing set of German legal codes that govern child custody, support, and/or visitation don't work against you.

Our firm aids you in obtaining German citizenship and/or any retirement funds held in Germany.

German Legal Services helps you get through these legally and emotionally difficult times quickly and effectively.

German Legal Services' attorneys have handled hundreds of civil law cases -- in addition to logging thousands of pro bono hours helping individuals online. Have a look at how our clients have benefitted from using German Legal Services.
