According to art. 140 GG in conjunction with art. 137 para. 5 WRV, "religious societies are to be granted, upon their application, the same rights as the old constituent bodies, if their constitution and the number of their members offer a guarantee of permanence."
The possibility for religious and ideological communities to obtain the status of K.d.ö.R. has improved significantly compared to the previous administrative practice due to the current supreme court decisions. There is also a helpful internal handout from the administration. We will be happy to advise you on the requirements and prospects of success and support you in your application.
In more than 30 years of experience in advising congregations, churches and other religious communities, it has become clear that the first consultation is important in order to explain to the client the basic requirements and the legal circumstances of the respective federal state. Only then can a decision be made, based on the information provided by the client on the facts of the case, as to whether and under what circumstances an application has a chance of success at this point in time.
We will then gladly accompany you through this step as well.
