Legal proceedings regarding a divorce or other family matters do not neccessarily have to be extensively expensive. To avoid any bad surprises, we inform you of the costs you have to consider in a divorce proceeding. The costs include the legal fees as well as the costs for the court.

Costs for the first consultation

At the first consultation, we will inform you of our fees in case you give us a mandate. After this first meeting, you can decide for yourself, if you will need our assistance or if the consultation already covered all your questions and needs.

Provided you give us your mandate, the costs of the first consultation will be offset with any future fees.

Legal aid – Financial aid permit

If you have a low or no income, there is the possibility to apply for a financial aid permit at the “Amtsgericht” (district court) of your place of residence for the legal consultation. You have to bring the financial aid permit to our first consultation and as a result, you only have to pay 15,00 € yourself (the required legal protection fee). At the district court, you will have to show your  financial need of protection (jobcenter notice/ notice from the social security office or recruitment agency). You also have to tell them, in which matter you need legal consultation.
You will receive the financial aid permit without an appointment directly at the “Rechtsantragsstelle” (legal application office) of the district court (with one exception: “Amtsgericht Neukölln” (district court of Neukölln), where you will need an appointment).

 Legal fees and hourly consultation costs

Further payments are calculated according to the Rechtsanwaltsvergütungsgesetz (RVG) (German attorney fee compensation law).
