Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Russia)

I have a common-law husband (Finland citizen). We live in Moscow (3 years). We have a child of 1.6 years. My husband is officially registered as the child's father. The child is a citizen of Russia. We are going to separate. Do I have a right to alimony payments?


According to the Russian Law you have a right to child support money. According to Art. 163 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation rights and liabilities of children and parents including parents' duty to support their children are determined by laws of the country of parents' joint residence. In case parents and children do not live together rights and liabilities of children and parents are determined by laws of the country of child's citizenship. Laws of the country of child's permanent residency may be applied with regard to alimony obligations and other relations between children and parents upon plaintiff's request.

Articles and consultations authored by attorney reflect the state of law as of the date of their writing. The laws change daily. Users of this site are advised to consult attorney regarding their situation.
