Also, this term applies if the fact of the birth occurred over three hundred days of the dissolution of the union official, or after that time, but paternity is not recognized, not found, or challenged in the courts with the appropriate decision.

In the column, which contains information about the father is either a dash, or else his data is recorded with the words mothers, and she immediately gets his hands on the information form №25, which confirms the fact of lone motherhood.

The Moscow City Government has established an additional allowance for young families, which is paid only once, at the birth of a child. The right to receive it, and is available for single mothers who have not attained the age of thirty who have the capital registration. And how much of this benefit in monetary terms, depending on the number of children.

It is paid until such time as the son or daughter of a woman is not reached eighteen years of age, ie age, which provides an opportunity for them to get a job.

The same applies to situations where a single mother raising a disabled child or a child who has a disability from childhood. She is constantly busy and hardly care if they wanted to be able to earn a living for themselves and the baby. So she, too, rely payments: in the first case up to eighteen years old, and the second - to twenty-three. Payment is 6000 rubles per month.

A single mother can count on compensation benefits if she and the child are living in non-privatized residential premises under a contract of employment. However, the payments do not apply to those women with children who have entered into such an agreement with the relatives, such as grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters and so on. The size of the compensatory allowance depends on how many children are brought up from single mothers.

  • And when in the care of single mothers is a child who is less than three years, the cash payment for the cost of hiring housing is fifty percent. The amount it can not exceed 3200 rubles.

With regard to the payment of sick leave running the lonely mother, then when her child is treated in a hospital, the calculation of benefits is based on seniority. If a son or daughter are at home, and the healing process is monitored on an outpatient basis, the amount of payment does not depend on length of service. They can be calculated and issued in full for the first ten days, and then charged at a level of fifty per cent of the wage.

And if the son or daughter is already seven years old, but there is fifteen, the mother paid for a two-week period, including weekends, and, provided that in the doctor's conclusion is not indicated the need for the extension of treatment.

It would seem that our legislation is taken care of single mothers country. Although we all know that on government payouts such women are unlikely to adequately support their children. But existing today provide benefits even if a small, but still the ability to hold out as long as a child can be arranged in kindergartens. Then single mothers a chance to return to the old job or find another that will allow to earn the money to a son or daughter in no need.
