I am currently living in the US and I would like to file a criminal charges and a civil lawsuit against a German citizen living in Ansbach Germany. Is it possible to do this online? I have spoken to many lawyers who are not located in Ansbach and they have told me they could file these cases for me.

Is there somewhere online that I can get information about civil and criminal proceedings in Germany? I have already paid a German lawyer over $300 to send the opponent a legal letter which the opponent ignored. Now I need to find another English Speaking German Lawyer.
Dear Customer,the legal system in Germany is quite complexI would need further informations about which category of law exactly?Criminal Law or Civil Law
The case is a civil matter. I am trying to recover my personal property from a German citizen. I had hired a lawyer who sent a letter to the opponent demanding my property. The opponent told my lawyer that she doesn't have my property. Now I would like to file a criminal complaint against the opponent for misappropriation.
Dear Customer,this is easy.You just write what has happened to the police in the town where she lives and ask for criminal prosecutionYou have to describe all the detailsThe Police are obliged to take the matter in their own hands
Thank you I will write to the police. Would police have to reply to my letter? A couple of months ago I asked you a question about German stalking laws. The opponent had claimed that she filed stalking charges against me but I have not recieviced any notification. So if charges were really filed I should have recieviced notification?
Yes if charges are filed yo get notification.It is called Mitteilung in Strafsachen ( Mistra)
I would like to write the letter to the polizei for the criminal complaint, but I am not sure what information is needed in the complaint. Is there an example on a criminal complaint that I can refer to? There are witnesses, do I list the witnesses in my comlaint?
Dear Customer,there is n example because each case is differentYou just write down the facts as exact as possible and name the witneses with name, dob and address
