Certificate of gratitude
In her speech, Infralex lawyer proposed to amend the family law with a number of provisions. In particular, according to Irina Zimina, it is necessary to take into account the rights of those parents whose salaries are below the subsistence level, which will make it impossible to collect alimony in the required amount.
On the other hand, it is necessary to define a limit on maintenance obligations and to introduce a procedure for reporting on the expenditure of money received for the maintenance of the child.
In addition, Irina believes that the experience of other States should be drawn upon in order to improve legislation. In France, for example, a special body of family judges has been established to deal with family disputes, which allows such cases to be resolved by the most competent judges.
In conclusion, Irina proposed to use a more flexible model in determining the amount of maintenance obligations - based on the real income of both parents and on the actual monthly costs of maintaining the child. Only then is it possible to strike a balance between the rights and legitimate interests of parents and, above all, to protect the interests of the child more effectively.
The full text of the statement will be published in the conference broshure.
