Family and Children
It is a sad but statistical reality that every year a considerable part of relationships (cohabiting, married and registered partnership) ends. When terminating a relationship, there are matters that need to be arranged. You can hand over this legal settlement with confidence to our experienced and expert family team at ScheerSanders.
Our specialised family lawyers can assist you in case of:
- Sharing the care for the children/contact arrangements;
- Child support;
- Communication about the children;
- Partner maintenance;
- Division of property (including settlement of prenuptial agreements and distribution of joint property);
- Pension issues.
A number of our lawyers have – also – specialised in family law cases involving entrepreneurs. This is where corporate and tax aspects play an important role. ScheerSanders has the in-depth knowledge and professional experience to support clients in these matters.
In addition, ScheerSanders represents the interests of clients in the following areas:
- Recognition of parentage, acknowledgement of paternity and adoption;
- Annulment of the recognition, denial of parenthood, revocation of the adoption;
