The Draft Civil Code specifies the status of a Single Parent
The Human Rights and Civil Integration Committee discussed the Draft Civil Code specifying the status of a single parent.
As one of the initiators, Rati Ionatamishvili stated, the Constitutional Court indicates that the category of the single parents with a minor child, whose spouse is deceased, declared diseased, declared missing, or is deprived of the parental rights, encounter the same problems and needs as the persons with the status of a single parent.
“It is crystal clear that actual single parents who are alone with a minor child but fail to meet the formal preconditions stipulated under the disputable norms to acquire the respective status are deprived of various legal benefits. Hence, we witness a differentiated treatment. The Bill specifies the status of a single mother or a single father”, - he added. The Committee approved the Bill.
