lawyer recommendation

I'm an EU citizen planning to marry a non EU foreign girl.
I would like to speak to a lawyer to get some information about wedding and immigration stuff. I know a couple of lawyers but they said they know more about divorcing than marriage and could not point to me other lawyers.

Can anyone recommend a lawyer (possibly that doesn't cost an arm and a leg) ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: lawyer recommendation

Shouldn't you be searching for a lawyer specialising in Immigration?

Re: lawyer recommendation

You don't need a lawyer. Talk to your gemeinde/commune admin office and also if getting married here the local civil registry office. Between them they'll tell you all you need to know.

Re: lawyer recommendation

Maybe if you just asked your actual questions here, someone may either be able to give you the information you're looking for or point you in the right direction. "Wedding and immigration stuff" isn't exactly specific.

You don't need a lawyer.
Indeed, no need for such trivial stuff.

Why do you think that you need a lawyer?

Re: lawyer recommendation

I want a lawyer because I have multiple issues I want to clarify,,,,such as immigration, marriage, wedding abroad, etc, etc etc.... I'd rather paying something and have the situation very clear rather than posting ten questions and have fifty nice people answering with contradictory answers (as it usually happens in internet fora :-))... and put them all together.... so anybody has a lawyer to recommend ?

Re: lawyer recommendation

Well then, it's your money to be wasted.

Here: https://www.sav-fsa.ch/en/anwaltssuche.html Look under civil law - matrimonial law. No idea about immigration lawyers. Highly doubt you will find one that's specialised in both unless of course it's a super basic "problem"

Then the people to be talking to are cantonal migration office (immigration), your local civil registry (marriage here), Swiss embassy/consulate in the country you plan to marry in (wedding abroad) and your civil registry office (marriage abroad recognition). It's all in the link I provided and there's even a FAQ link:

https://www.bj.admin.ch/bj/fr/home/g...d/faq/ehe.html

Start with these and then see if there are any outstanding questions you need answers to.
