The claim is directed against the local public youth welfare agency in whose area the child has his or her habitual residence.

Application for information from the custody register § 58 a SGB VIII

A mother who was or is not married to the father of the child may, upon request, obtain written information from the responsible youth welfare office to the effect that

  1. there are no entries in the custody register, or
  2. entries exist only in respect of the parts of parental care affected by a court decision.

If the parents are not married to each other at the birth of the child, the mother initially has sole custody of the child (Section 1626a (3) of the Civil Code).

Joint parental custody exists if:

  • the parents have made concordant declarations of custody
  • the parents marry each other
  • the family court grants the parents joint parental care.

The custody arrangements are entered in the custody register of the Youth Welfare Office at the child's place of birth.

The certificate serves as proof for the mother in legal dealings with authorities, schools, kindergartens, doctors, banks, etc., if she is either entitled to sole parental custody of the child or there are entries relating to parts of the parental custody due to a court decision.
