We are excited to introduce you to our newly launched sister law firm, German Dual Citizenship, LLC. This national company was specifically founded to assist German citizens in obtaining dual citizenship. Please visit our new sister firm at www.germandualcitizenship.com for extensive information about the process and the services we offer. If you should be interested in our services in that area of law, you can contact us through Magna Law Group or German Dual Citizenship. We are looking forward to serving our German clients even more efficiently, nationwide.

We are one of the very few law firms in the United States that focus on assistaning to our German clients in retaining their German citizenship while obtaining their US citizenship.

Unlike most other countries, Germany takes away its citizenship if one of their citizens obtains new, foreign citizenship.Fortunately, there is a process that provides an opportunity for German citizens to apply for permission to keep their citizenship when obtaining foreign citizenship. It is called the "Genehmigung zur Beibehaltung der deutschen Staatsangehörigkeit." It is a relatively complicated process that requires a successful application to the Bundesverwaltungsamt in Köln. In this application the applicant has to convincingly show that they still have strong connections to Germany, they are unusually disadvantaged as non-US citizens here in the US, and they have to justify why they should be allowed to retain their German citizenship. 

This can be a daunting task for most applicants, which is why we have been helping our German clients for many years with this process. We only take on clients where we believe they have a chance to successfuly apply, and we guide them in every way to assur that their application is complete and adequately supported to have the best chance of success. 

Tanja Vance has given many presentations to German schools and organizations about this process, and has herself successfully retained her German citizenship through this application, many years ago. Tanja is passionate about helping her fellow countrymen and women in being able to obtain dual citizenship. So far, we are proud to say that we have been able to maintain a 100% approval rate for our clients for the BBG application. 

Please contact us if you would like a free consultation to assess your eligibility for the BBG or if you have questions about the process (Wir sprechen natürlich Deutsch). Please also read more about the requirements and the process here:
