Marriage Execution with partner with custody

The marriage of persons who have joint children or are otherwise entitled to custody of a child must be registered with the competent authority.

Process flow

Before the marriage is concluded, the parties must be asked whether there have been any changes in their factual circumstances concerning the conditions of marriage since the marriage was registered and whether they wish to determine a married name.

The marriage should take place in a dignified form commensurate with the importance of the marriage. Witnesses are no longer mandatory under German law, but can still be involved.

The wedding ceremony takes place at a place dedicated (prescribed) by the competent authority (registry office).

The lawful marriage presupposes the legal capacity (especially the natural legal capacity and the marital capacity) of the spouse, which is checked by the registrar / registry office. The declarations of the spouses that they wish to marry each other must be recorded by the registrar in minutes after the marriage has been concluded. The minutes must contain all the information to be recorded in the marriage register. It must be signed by the spouses, witnesses and registrar.

A marriage is also deemed to have been concluded if the parties to the marriage have declared their intention to marry each other.

The marriage is concluded when the spouses declare in person and with simultaneous presence before the registrar that they wish to enter into the marriage with each other.

As part of the marriage, you have the opportunity to determine a married name. It is also possible to determine an accompanying name to the married name.

The jurisdiction lies with the registry office where the marriage is to be concluded at your discretion.
