A draft law circulated by the Justice Ministry says that a mother should be required to disclose “who she slept with during the time of conception” if asked by a man who is paying child support.

There would only be exceptions to this law if there are “serious reasons,” the draft legislation states without specifying further.

Men who successfully contest their paternity would be able to claim back child support payments for a period of two years, the document states.

The draft law is due for approval by the cabinet of Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday.
