  • The status of "single mother" in the life and the law
  • The fundamental rights of single mothers
  • State support to single mothers

Until a few decades ago, a woman has a baby out of wedlock and raised him alone, were persecuted and condemned by society. These children were the target of ridicule, taunts and teasing by their peers. The kid without a father was considered a disgrace to the family, of course, that about any allowances to single mothers at the time was out of the question.

Modern mores have changed dramatically, but that does not mean that the girl without her husband now easy to raise a child. In addition to the psychological problems faced by every little man, brought up in single-parent family, and there are financial difficulties. A woman is hard enough to provide themselves and their baby. Despite the fact that the law provides for social benefits, not all know and enjoy their rights. In addition, the size of such payments is not too large, and sometimes in order to get a paltry amount of child-raising, a single mother has to spend a lot of time and effort. However, each woman must have information about what kind of assistance to the state it is calculated and how it can be achieved.

The status of "single mother" in the life and the law

In today's world, where the marriage is no longer a sacred something, a woman raising a child without a husband, are found all the time. However, from a legal point of view, not every one of them can rightly be regarded as a single mother.

Under the law, a lonely mother recognized the woman, who herself gave birth to and bringing up a baby without being married. In the same category fall into a situation where there is no joint statement by both parents to establish paternity when registering the child. In this case, in the book of registration of birth is recorded on a pipsqueak mother's name, on their own and at their request indicating the name and patronymic of the child. Thus, in his paper in the box fatherhood will be a dash, or "information inscribed with the words of the mother." This woman shall be granted a certificate confirming its status. However, if a child has a father, regardless of whether he lives with it or not, the new mother in law can not be considered alone. But she has every right to bring a man to participate in the life of the crumbs, for example, to sue and collect from him alimony.

Today, there are often other cases. If a woman has lost a spouse, that is a widow, she is not recognized as a single mother, respectively, rely on the monthly benefit is not necessary. However, the state provides it other assistance in connection with the loss of the family breadwinner. Possible and this option: a man leaves his family, his fiancee just got out of the hospital and is still in position. In this case, the expectant mother rely only alimony.

Experts recommend at registration of birth certificates do not specify the name and patronymic of the father, and just leave this blank graph. This is due to the fact that if the Pope entered into the document, in certain cases - for example, out of Russia - a woman would have to take his permission for removal of the child. The same situation occurs when registering the baby at mother's residence - the second parent must give their formal approval. However, there is a downside: if the certificate column "paternity" leave empty, the next baby will not be able to become the heir and claim to put his property.

As you can see, the definition of the concept of "single mother" according to the law and in everyday layman - two different things. For example, many divorced women with children, single mothers call themselves. However, this is not true, because one thing - the strict letter of the law and quite another - a simple turn of phrase. So let's just take a closer look at the cases in which a woman who gave birth to and raising a baby alone can legalize their status:

  • If she gave birth to a child, not a member at that time married, and paternity has not been established properly, that is, in the court or voluntarily.
  • Also count on the monthly allowance is possible if she gave birth to a baby after 300 days or more after the official dissolution of the union with the father remains.
  • The child was born when she was married or had not yet passed the allotted number of days (mentioned above) after the divorce, and Pope recorded spouse (ex-husband), but paternity was challenged them. In addition, the newly-made mother's hand has entered into force a court decision that a man is not a parent.
  • If it's anyone not officially been married, and adopted by a self or adopt a child.

In general, widows, divorcees and women who voluntarily judicially deprived of the right to paternity of a man accustomed to call themselves single mothers, in fact, under the law are not. So, despite the fact that they are raising one child or more children without a husband, corresponding payments to them are not put. According to the legislation Federation single mother writes a newborn baby on his name and patronymic - on request.

Unfortunately, in our country many people know what they have a duty, but are aware of their rights are not fully implemented. The woman with the above status by contacting the social security of their place of residence, the corresponding benefits, the amount of which is determined by the state.
