Understanding Family Law:

Family law in Egypt encompasses a broad spectrum of legal issues related to marriage, divorce, child custody, inheritance, and personal status. It is grounded in both civil legislation and Islamic principles, reflecting the diverse cultural and religious fabric of Egyptian society. Whether you’re contemplating marriage, facing marital challenges, or addressing family disputes, understanding the fundamentals of family law is essential to safeguarding your rights and interests.

Key Principles and Sources of Family Law:

  1. Law on Personal Status (Law No. 25 of 1929): The Law on Personal Status serves as the cornerstone of family law in Egypt, providing regulations on marriage, divorce, child custody, and inheritance. It incorporates Islamic law principles while also addressing modern family dynamics and legal protections. This law outlines the rights and responsibilities of spouses, parents, and children, ensuring fairness and equity in family relationships.
  2. Islamic Law (Sharia): Islamic law plays a significant role in shaping family law in Egypt, particularly concerning matters such as marriage contracts, spousal rights, and inheritance. While the Law on Personal Status incorporates Islamic principles, certain aspects of family law may be subject to interpretation by religious authorities and courts.

"Wir haben 2016/17 von einem nicht seriösen Anwalt zwei Wohnungen gekauft gehabt, wir sind dann über die Deutsche Botschaft zu Mr. Michael gestoßen und er hat uns sehr geholfen. Wir sind aktuell dran das Problem mit dem vorherigen Anwalt und Herrn Nader zu klären. Wir werden jede Entscheidung nun mit Herrn Michael Nader vorher klären und dann eine Wahl treffen. Also ich kann ihm sehr empfehlen. Sehr vertrauenswürdig und hilfsbereit.
