Divorce and separation

Initial consultation

In an initial consultation in Lucerne, our divorce attorneys will ascertain with you your current life situation if you are considering a termination of your marriage or a phase of separation. As part of this consultation, a first evaluation of the possible courses of action will be made.

Providing support in deciding how to proceed

The analysis of your personal situation includes considering the advantages and disadvantages of the various courses of action in the event of separation or divorce. Our divorce attorneys will provide guidance in deciding whether settlement discussions are advisable or if court proceedings should be initiated either in Lucerne or elsewhere in Switzerland.

Developing a separation settlement or divorce settlement

As divorce attorneys and attorneys in marriage protection proceedings or separation settlements, we endeavour, where possible and expedient, to achieve amicable solutions in the event of separation or divorce (alimony or support payments, child-related matters, joint custody, sole custody, shared care, sole care, visiting rights, family residence, liquidation of the marital property regime, occupational pensions, separation of assets etc.). We provide support in developing a separation agreement or divorce agreement and will take all necessary legal steps.

Providing support in complex income and financial situations or questions regarding companies

In particular, we offer support concerning complex income and financial situations or questions regarding family companies. When required, we work together with tax experts and auditors.
