Do you need advice in con­nec­tion with your arran­ge­ments for care and sta­tuto­ry mea­su­res, your will or your con­tract of inheri­tan­ce?
If you have any ques­ti­ons about your arran­ge­ments for care and sta­tuto­ry mea­su­res, a last will and tes­ta­ment, a mar­ria­ge con­tract or inheri­tan­ce con­tract or a com­bi­ned mar­ria­ge and inheri­tan­ce con­tract, we are at your side. In coope­ra­ti­on with local nota­ries, you will recei­ve all the necessa­ry ser­vices in our office so that you can draw up a will, a sui­ta­ble mar­ria­ge or inheri­tan­ce con­tract or an arran­ge­ment for care and sta­tuto­ry mea­su­res tailo­red to your needs.

With wills as well as mar­ria­ge and inheri­tan­ce con­trac­ts, it is pos­si­ble to devia­te from the legal regu­la­ti­ons and to make spe­ci­fic orders as to how their respec­tive esta­tes are to be dis­tri­bu­t­ed. It is important to keep an eye on the rights to the com­pul­so­ry por­ti­on pre­scri­bed by law. Depen­ding on the fami­ly situa­ti­on, it may be the con­cern to make indi­vi­du­al heirs bet­ter or wor­se or even to exclu­de them com­ple­te­ly. Sin­ce inheri­tan­ce law fol­lows matri­mo­ni­al law in terms of time, a coor­di­na­ti­on of mar­ria­ge con­trac­ts with the desi­red objec­tives of inheri­tan­ce law must be obser­ved in any case. With a cus­to­mi­zed coor­di­na­ti­on of mar­ria­ge and inheri­tan­ce con­tract in a sin­gle con­tract, unplea­sant con­se­quen­ces can be avoi­ded and the desi­red goals achie­ved. This app­lies to mar­ried cou­ples as well as to part­ners in a regis­te­red part­nership.

Wit­hout having to resort to an inheri­tan­ce con­tract, you can take a num­ber of pre­cau­ti­ons with a Tes­ta­ment . It is pos­si­ble to use Pre- and post-heirs , eit­her for an inheri­tan­ce or for a lega­cy. The lega­cy can con­sist of an object or a sum of money. A testa­tor can also make orders as to who should take care of the exe­cu­ti­on of his will after his death (exe­cu­tor of will). Inheri­tan­ce law offers a varie­ty of pos­si­bi­li­ties to shape the finan­ci­al situa­ti­on after one's own death. In long-term rela­ti­ons­hips, be it in the con­text of a coha­bi­ta­ti­on, a mar­ria­ge or a part­nership, a most favou­red tre­at­ment of the sur­vi­ving girl­fri­end or boy­fri­end, the spou­se or girl­fri­end is often desi­red. The same app­lies in the case of a regis­te­red part­nership.

Do you have ques­ti­ons about your esta­te?
With tar­ge­ted advice on matri­mo­ni­al and inheri­tan­ce mat­ters, it is pos­si­ble to avo­id dis­pu­te among the future heirs, to trans­fer assets to the desi­red per­sons and even to save cer­tain taxes . In this con­nec­tion also life insuran­ce , assets with old age pre­cau­ti­on mecha­nisms or the trans­fer of exempt pri­va­te com­pa­nies play an important role.

We advi­se you in all are­as of matri­mo­ni­al and inheri­tan­ce law and, of cour­se, also on the sub­ject of arran­ge­ments for care and sta­tuto­ry mea­su­res.
