Family law lawyer Amsterdam: specialist in family matters
Our expert lawyers and mediators divorce law in Amsterdam are specialists in family matters. After all, experience has shown that even if you are well represented by a lawyer, a divorce takes a lot out of you: it has major consequences for your finances, living situation and children.
Divorce lawyer in Amsterdam
Our divorce lawyer will take care of the business side of the divorce for you, whether or not as mediator, for the best result, also in case of a registered partnership. We can help you with both a unilateral and a joint divorce petition, if there is a ‘permanent disruption of the marriage’.
Defence in divorce proceedings
Your partner’s legal counsel can file a defense in the divorce proceedings with the court. The court will schedule a hearing (conciliation), after which a decision is rendered. If the parties reach an agreement, your divorce lawyer will write it down in a settlement agreement.
Mediation and divorce
Through mediation, the parties try to find the best solution for each other, without the involvement of a judge. It is an independent process.
Mediation is often faster and cheaper than legal proceedings.
Provisional divorce settlement
The court can make an interim provision for the duration of the divorce proceedings on issues such as:
- who will stay in the marital home,
- with whom the children stay,
Joint divorce: a good alternative
In a joint divorce petition, you seek one lawyer together for the divorce, with the court being asked for a divorce jointly. This avoids a painful and protracted procedure, and is possible if you agree on everything.
Covenant for divorce
The lawyers will then draw up a covenant, which will properly set out all the agreements between the spouses. The covenant can be part of the court ruling (divorce decree).
Family law and juvenile law
In addition, in family and juvenile law we can assist you with problems between cohabitants, married couples, relatives, children and parents, such as:
- Contact arrangement
- Annulment of recognition and denial of paternity
- Change of name
- Family division
