Disclosing Compensation

.   Today, the federal cabinet in Berlin approved a bill that will require the disclosure of management compensation to shareholders. The measure is part of the overall package to overhaul the systems of corporate governance.

Computing Child Support

.   A frequently deployed measure to compute child support obligations based on factors such as needs and ability exists in Germany in the form of a table called the Düsseldorfer Tabelle. The Düsseldorf Court of Appeals manages the table and it is referenced throughout Germany.

Based on recent adjustments by the federal ministry of justice in Berlin that will become effective on July 1, 2005, the table has been amended and published with an explanatory press release.

The German Wikipedia has a listing on the types of support that apply in Germany. Zeitschrift für das gesamte Familienrecht offers links to the current Düsseldorf and Berlin tables. Treffpunkt-Eltern lists a number of computational aides for various domestic relations issues, including alimony and child support.
