Article 116 II GG Lawyer

Law Offices of Annabelle Fischer handles naturalization claims, i.e. Reinstatement of German Citizenship, under Art 116 (2) of the German Basic Law. Under certain requirements, Art 116 (2) of the German Basic Law allows former German citizens who were deprived of their citizenship on political, racial, or religious grounds between January 30, 1933, and May 8, 1945, to reinvoke German citizenship. This also applies to their descendants. We assist our clients with the entire application process and work closely with the German Missions in the U.S. and the Bundesverwaltungsamt in Germany. To date we have a 100% sucess rate filing these claims for reinstatement of German citizenship.



Basic Criteria to be Considered

  • Are you of German-Jewish heritage or do you have German ancestors of Jewish heritage who had to flee Germany during the Nazi regime?

  • When did you or your ancestors naturalize in the U.S. or in another country?

  • What documentation do you have related to your ancestors regarding their German descent and Jewish heritage, if any?

We prepare your application and our attorneys licensed in Germany and the U.S. file it for you directly with the Bundesverwaltungsamt located in Cologne, Germany. We will guide you through the entire process and will also obtain documents from the German archives, if necessary.
