  1. Standesamt

    A Standesamt is a German civil registration office, which is responsible for recording births, marriages and deaths. Soon after the German Empire was created in 1871 from the previous collection of German states, a universal system of register offices was established, taking effect on January 1, 1876. The system had previously been introduced in Prussia on October 1, 1874 and had been in use since the beginning of the 19th century in areas where the French Civil Code applied. Usually, the office was located in the local city or town hall. Today, those register offices are still part of the administration of every German municipality. Since 1876, Germans in Germany can only enter into a legal marriage in a Standesamt. Therefore, every German marriage takes place before the local registrar. A religious ceremony can be organised afterwards, but has no legal effect. Apart from that, every child born in Germany has to be registered at a register office and every death has to be registered, also. same sex life partnerships are also entered into at the register office.
