Description
Summary:The essay discusses the change in the codification and legal practice concerning the right of illegitimate children to be treated as heirs of their biological parents. It will describe the development of the legal situation concerning the status of illegitimate children before and after the reunification of Germany before giving an overview over the court rulings of the European Court of Human Rights dating from 28.05.2009 (3545/04) and 09.2.2017 (29762/10), in which the court decided that the legal provisions in united Germany’s law had in both aforementioned cases not been compliant with the European Convention on Human Rights. Finally the solution to this problem found by the Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof) will be presented.
