What is joint custody?

In the event of a divorce, both parents usually have joint custody of their children. This means that they take equal care of the children and make important decisions together. Married parents automatically receive joint custody when the child is born, but unmarried parents must apply to the relevant youth welfare office for joint custody.

What is sole custody?

In certain cases, one parent can apply for sole custody if the welfare of the child is jeopardised by the other parent. Examples of this are Neglect, inadequate care, alcohol consumption, drug and medication abuse, physical abuse and psychological distress, sexual misconduct and violence towards the other parent.

How can you apply for sole custody?

To apply for sole custody, it is necessary to submit the relevant application to the family court. If the other parent is not willing to relinquish custody, it is also necessary to include a detailed justification of the application as well as clear evidence that the child's welfare is at risk (e.g. photos).

The family court will examine the application thoroughly and make a decision based on the best interests of the child.

Another important note on the subject of maintenance: The parent concerned must pay the legally prescribed maintenance even if custody is lost.
