the interests of the man, the woman and the employer are to be taken into account, said Harbarth at the announcement. Is acceptable to the judge the transfer of losses to a maximum of ten percent. This should have no impact for the employer to be unfavorable, he must keep the Ex-wife of his employee in the private System.

Klaus Because, family law expert at the German lawyers ' Association, welcomed the correction in principle. "For women, it is of course a good result," he said in Karlsruhe.

but He also sees a lot of work on the family court judge to come. This would have to be able to make much more extensive tests. It would be a "huge task for the family courts, which are burdened with the mass of business, balancing supply anyway already". Because of the assumption that the judge must consult with the not always alone, and more often experts.

women whose divorce procedures have been completed already legally doesn't help the judgment. According to Because you have to live with the losses. The decision applies only to the future.
