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

In which cases child support money shall be paid after a child reaches the age of 18? Particularly in case a child studies in a higher educational institution on contractual basis.


According to Art. 85 part 1 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation parents must support their children after they reach the legal age only in case the children are unemployable (disabled). Studying in a higher education institution is not a disablement and doesn't entail an obligation to effect alimony payments. Correspondence and evening education allows a person to study and work at the same time. Obtaining higher education is a right of a citizen and parents do not have to support him/her in this case. Alimony obligations are considered terminated from the date a child reaches the legal age (18 years).

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.
