  • In the case of unmarried couples, everyone must fill out and sign their own registration form. The same applies to adult children.

Therefore, from 1 November 2015, a declaration must be submitted if in the future both custodians no longer have a common home with the child or if the sole (previously only) home or the main residence of the child changes from one custodian to the other. A corresponding declaration of consent can be found under Forms and Documents (see below).
