We represent international individuals in divorces where primarily money issues are at stake: division of property and alimony.

We strive for simplicity and fairness, and want to avoid acrimony and long court proceedings.




International divorces must pay special consideration to a couple’s marital property regime.

The marital property regime can be any of the following:

  • Separate property (for example most US states on the East Coast);
  • Community property of acquets or ganancial property (community of gains);
  • Universal community property (very seldom);
  • The German Zugewinngemeinschaft.

The marital regime depends on the following factors:

  • Nationalities of the spouses;
  • Place of marriage;
  • Election made at the marriage;
  • Domicile at the time of the marriage;
  • Domicile after the marriage;
  • Election made after the marriage.

Depending on these factors, various property items may have different property regimes.
