Another article on the German Supreme Courts ruling that shared-parenting can be applied in Germany, if 1) it is in the childs interests and 2) the parents are not already battling it out in court. Then it can be ‘forcefully’ applied.
A couple of interesting things come out of this article:
- The Germany Family Minister from the Social Democrat Party is VERY pro-mother.
- Even though the cause of this ruling from the Supreme Court is based in part on the recommendation from the Council of Europe to incorporate shared parenting into national law this minister has ignored it, and has commissioned her own study into the benefits. This study is effectively forbidden from taking evidence from those children that are mostly affected by PAS. Because BOTH parents have to give written permission!
Finally an open letter from “mutterlobby.de” addressed to the family minister is referenced. This letter talks about fathers that simply want to see their children in the most negative way. Isn’t is time to stop the gender war and find a common workable way for both sexes to contribute to the development of their own children?
