According to German law, if the husband got married again, what law protects the new marriage and his new family? Is there such a law existing in Germany?
Dear Customer,thank you for using JustAnswer.Each and every marriage is protected by several laws, first of all the German constitution, called "Grundgesetz". It says in its Art. 6: Marriage and family are under the special protection of the state.Second to be mentioned, there is the german civil code. It protects a marriage with special laws.I hope this was helpful.Thank you for accepting, don´t hgesitate to ask a follow up question.Kind regardsD. BettingerAttorney
If my huaband married me and we have kids now, but his ex-wife keeps asking money from him for giving to their son, how should I protect our marriage and kids? Is there a limit she can ask for?
Dear customer,sorry for answering that late.The children can apply for child support until they have absolved a first education that allows them to earn money by themselves.Limits are given by the so calles "Düsseldorfer Tabelle", a tableau defined by courts saying how much money children have to be paid. The amount depends on the money the oblgated party earns and the age of the child.For example: A child aging 13 years with an obligated party earning 2000 €/month has to be paid 469 € monthly. This is not individaul as there are several reasons the obligated party has to pay less, e.g. other children that have to be supported.I hope this was helpful,kind regardsD. BettingerAttorney
Thank you for your answer! Where can I find the tableau on line? Until how old the father should pay his son? 18 years old or graduated from high school?
Dear customer,you will find the "Düsseldorfer Tabelle" following this link:http://www.olg-duesseldorf.nrw.de/07service/07_ddorftab/07_ddorf_tab_2011/Duesseldorfer_Tabelle_2011.pdfThe obligated father has to pay until the end of finishing a first education.Kind regardsD. BettingerAttorney
What do you mean the end of finishing a first education? Elementary school, middle school or high school? Could you please send me the link too? Thank you!
Dear customer,no. That does not mean high school. That does mean an education, that allows the child to earn money by himself. That can be an university dipüloma, that may mean an apprenticeship.There is bno link existing, it is german law.Kind regardsD. BettingerAttorney
