Acquisition of German citizenship by birth, by declaration and by naturalization

Did your ancestors immigrate from Germany after the year 1904?  Then you could be entitled to German citizenship. 

Here are some typical cases, which may apply to you. 

Loss of German citizenship

Are you of German origin, but possibly you or your ancestors have lost the German citizenship due to a naturalization abroad? Please let us check your legal situation for you. 

Establishment of German citizenship

What happens if our assessment points to the fact that you might already have the German citizenship or could be entitled to it? 

You may want to have this fact officially stated by the German government and maybe also apply for a German / EU passport.  We will help you to set up and submit the necessary application and will act as your legal representatives until you get the final result. 

If you have already applied for German citizenship and your application has not been decided upon yet, or if it had been turned down, you can appoint us as your attorneys for further dealings with the German government.
