Dear Customer, thank you for using Just Answer.
I will answer your question based on your data.
Do you have no marriage contract, so the asset compensation law is important.
In Germany applies the Zugewinnausgleich (equalisation). This means that the assets of the spouses is separated. So, it is not automatically shared assets of both spouses with marriage. A compensation for the assets acquired to takes place.For this are capable of starting and final asset compared. The differential forms the basis for the compensation.
The financial compensation is higher, the higher is the final assets to the initial asset.
For this reason you should wait with the divorce, until the company is profitable.
Thanks for your answer. Is it possible under German law to refuse a divorce and if so, for how long? Or can he divorce me anyway without my consent? Someone told me that after being separated for over 1 year, it is possible to divorce even if one party is not willing.
No. A divorce without consent is possible after 3 years of separation, § 1566 subsection 2 BGB.
