Nationality and Citizenship Law


You would like to be naturalized but don’t want to give up your original citizenship?

You would like to acquire foreign citizenship and keep your German passport?

You have German parents or ancestors and want to know if you’re, therefore, also a German citizen?

You have other questions regarding the subject of nationality law?

Then we are the right ones for you! Our attorneys specialized in nationality law will gladly answer all your questions regarding acquisition, retention and loss of German citizenship. For years, our highly specialized team of attorneys has been handling citizenship cases nationwide and has extensive experience in this field.

Strictly speaking, you don’t necessarily require legal support when applying for citizenship. However, as soon as specific questions concerning the nationality law need to be resolved, it is often advisable to seek legal counsel early on in the process. This especially pertains to questions relating to retention and loss of citizenship as well as the acceptance of dual citizenship.

We advise and represent you in all proceedings before the respective German authorities – regardless of whether you live in Germany or abroad. In case of a refusal we will fight for your right in the respective administrative court.
