Have German Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
what is the age of majority? There are 3 children involved 1 in university now (21 years old), 1 looking for additional schooling (19 years old/Realschule completed) and 1 17 in school.
I was once told that child support is due until a child is 'wirtschaftlich Unabhaengig) (economically independent). If this is the case, what does that mean?
do you recommend pursuing a modification of child support in a German court?
the current order states that support will be paid until the youngest reaches the age of majority. Should I expect that If a German court modifies this aspect of the order, then the result is likely to be that I will be required to pay the full 3 child amount until the youngest has finished schooling?
child support - not spousal support -
so any attempt at modification will be at the court's discretion? I am trying to understand what the possible outcomes might be.
ok thank you
no that will suffice. it sounds like i need to consult with a German attorney
