Dad refused the child: what to do
If the husband refused the child, make a clear plan of action. You need to get alimony payments, pay even more attention to the child and begin to deal with yourself. Become a self-sufficient and single-minded woman, before which new opportunities open up.
The husband refused the child: a single mother is not a sentence
Demographers are alarmed: there are more than 10 million single mothers in Russia who raise children without the support of their husbands. What should women do that find themselves in a difficult life situation and have to take care of the material welfare of the child on their own?
If the husband refuses to raise children and help them financially, this does not mean that you can not manage alone. To survive the loss of support is difficult, but you need to gather strength. From now on, you will have to take care of your children twice as much – for yourself, and for the child’s father, in order to give them all the best.
The first thing you need to do is formalize a new social status – a single mother. This will give you the right to receive certain benefits, and also – to alimony. If the father does not voluntarily give money to support the child, then they can be collected through the court – this is provided by law.
Do not be proud and do not think that you do not need anything else from this person: take care of the child first – he needs this money. Study the legislation on alimony or consult a lawyer.
If the husband has stopped communicating with the child and does not participate in the costs of its maintenance, this does not mean a waiver of parental rights. Your task is to collect evidence that in reality the children are raised without the participation of the father. If there is evidence, then you will be able to get payment of alimony through the court without any problems. Your main tool is Article 71 of the Family Code (deprivation of parental rights).
Article 71. Consequences of deprivation of parental rights
- Parents deprived of parental rights lose all rights based on the fact of kinship with the child for whom they were deprived of parental rights, including the right to receive from him the content (Article 87 of this Code), as well as the right to benefits and state benefits established for citizens with children.
- Depriving parental rights does not absolve parents from the obligation to support their child.
- The issue of further cohabitation of the child and parents (one of them), deprived of parental rights, is decided by the court in the manner established by the housing legislation.
- A child in respect of whom the parents (one of them) is deprived of parental rights, retains the right of ownership of the dwelling or the right to use the dwelling, and retains property rights based on the fact of kinship with parents and other relatives, including the right to inheritance .
- If it is not possible to transfer the child to another parent or if the parental rights of both parents are denied, the child is transferred to the care of the guardianship and trusteeship authority.
- Adoption of the child in case of deprivation of parents (one of them) of parental rights is allowed no earlier than the expiration of six months from the date of the court’s decision to deprive parents (one of them) of parental rights.
