This work is a concise exposition and analysis of the essential elements of German law with regard to family relations, marital property, and succession to estates. It covers the sources and instruments of family and succession law as practised in Germany, the courts that adjudicate and administer the laws, issues surrounding the person as a legal entity (especially in relation to consent), and the legal disposition of property among family members. The legal aspects of such matters as nationality, domicile, and residence; marriage, divorce, and cohabitation; adoption and guardianship; intestate and testamentary succession and inter vivos arrangements; and the acquisition and administration of estates are all treated to a degree of depth that should prove useful in nearly any situation likely to arise in legal practice.
