Dual Citizenship for Germans living in the United States

Navigate the Complexities of German Citizenship Law with Confidence - Trust Our Experience to Help You Secure Dual Citizenship through Retention Permission or Re-naturalization.

Dual citizenship in Germany and the United States allows for flexibility in travel, work, and political participation in both countries. It also provides access to social services and business opportunities. Additionally, it can offer a strong sense of cultural identity and connection to both countries. Having dual citizenship is the exception in the German citizenship law. However, there are options to apply for a retention permission or, in case you lost your German citizenship already, to apply for re-naturalization. Contact me for a first brief assessment to find out which way is the best for you.

Contracts with German Individuals or Businesses

Maximize your chances of success in German business dealings by being informed of the key differences between German and U.S. contract law. Don't fall into the trap of legal missteps - reach out to me now for a comprehensive evaluation of your situation. Together, we'll determine the best strategy to strengthen your position and protect your interests.

Do you need an attorney?

Especially when it comes to applications to German government authorities, my experience for over 25 years tells me, there is in fact no difference in applying on your own or through an attorney. They are not more “impressed” nor would they treat your case differently if you applied through an attorney.

However, the key advantage of working with an experienced attorney lies in their ability to identify and present crucial information to support your case in the most effective way.

Maximize Your Chances of Success with My Flexible Services: Whether you require a simple consultation, guidance on filling out the application form, or full representation, I can help.
