German term or phrase: Anschlussrechtsmittel
This is at the very end of a divorce decree's "Protokoll" of a hearing.
Die Parteivertreter erklaeren: Wir verzichten auf Rechtsmittel, Anschlussrechtsmittel und Antraege.... Wir verzichten auf Tatbestand und Entscheidungsgründe soweit das zulaessig ist"
I'm having a hard time finding what these statements represent, and have had no luck finding the meaning to the word "anschlussrechtsmittel". Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

judicial ways of appeal

Anschlussberufung is cross-appeal.
Anschlussrechtsmittel (recht.zivil.formell.prozess) Als Anschlussrechtsmittel bezeichnet man die Anschlussberufung, Anschlussrevision und Anschlussbeschwerde. Von einer Anschlussberufung spricht man, wenn nach Einlegung der Berufung durch eine Partei (= Berufungsführer), die Gegenpartei unselbständig Berufung mit den Ziel einer Abänderung zur ihren Gunsten einlegt (§ 524 Abs. 1 ZPO). Die Anschlussberufung kann bis zum Ablauf der Berufungsbegründungsfrist des Berufungsklägers eingelegt werden (§ 524 Abs. 2 ZPO). D.h. sie ist auch dann noch zulässig, wenn die eigentliche Einlegungsfrist schon abgelaufen ist.

Example sentence(s):
  • The party undertakes not to take any legal steps to appeal.
