Germany Formulates Adoption Laws

20 Feb 2013


Immigration News

German and European top courts have extended gay adoption laws in Germany, a further step toward equality for homosexual couples. From now on, life partners will have more rights when it comes to adoption.

After Tuesday's ruling by Germany's highest court, Ingmar Zöller will finally become a father. For the moment, his husband Thomas Welter is the only legal guardian of the two children that the couple is raising in Berlin. Until now, it hasn't been possible for homosexual couples in civil partnerships in Germany to adopt a child together.

Under the ruling, if one partner has adopted a child, the other partner now has the right to become the adoptive mother or father of that child as well, in what's known as "successive adoptions." Until now, they could only adopt their partner's biological child.

"That was really unfair," Zöller told DW. "The ruling now means that I can finally officially become what I always was: the father of my two children."

If you are the one who would like to migrate to Germany, take the right step right now. Approach an experienced service provider for immigration Germany.
