Have German Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Dear Mme Marie,
Thank you for your answer,
So we have never apply for joint custody and we do not live together.
I want to apply for sole custody but in the mean time you are assuring me that I do have the sole custody by law?
My daughter has dual citizenship at the moment but she is registered living at both our respected residences.
My question is, if we did not apply for joint costudy in front of the law, she is officially under my care. no?
How can I make my sole custody official?
Does he have to agree to this?
I understand, thank you!
Now that I have sole custody, am I obligated to aloud the father to see her an specific amount of time?
Do I have to agree with his education requirements?
Where do I apply to get child support from the father?
What are his legal rights?
Thank you so much!
I do not want to restrict the visits of the father, this IS the reason I have move to Germany!!! I wanted to have an idea if there where a maximul amout of time before it is considered joint custody.
But I now understant that if we have not apply, it cannot happen.
I have another question,
Can I also apply for child support to the City of Berlin?
I'm asking because I'm having a hard time since my Visa requieres that I go to intensive school 4h/day, 5days/week (from 8h30am to 12h30) and that I am a single mother.
All these questions are because I want to apply for longer Hort after school so I can work and survive! The father is against it saying I'm puting her emotional health at risk. My demand is so to have an alternative if my work requieres more time on school days...
