The answer in detail

Procedure for divorce

If you still get along with one another and can talk, we recommend you sign a separation agreement. In such an agreement you can agree – without having to go to court on how to govern your coexistence following separation, particularly with regard to the children. In a next step, the so-called divorce decree is produced. This governs all the consequences of the divorce and is subsequently approved by a court.
