Not for nothing said the former judge at the Federal Social Court, Mr. Dau:

Without detailed explanation, it is impossible to cut a path through the legislature’s greenhouse of branching thickets of basic parental allowance, parental allowance plus, partnership bonus months, partner months and a combination of all these forms of benefit. The legal complexity has thus reached a level that makes it almost impossible for those affected to apply them themselves.
