Victoriia Varienikova advises on how to register place of residence of child if parents are divorced

If parents are divorced or separated, the registration of the place of residence of a child can be quite challenging.

Sofiya Law Firm associate partner and advocate Ms Victoriia Varienikova has told about available solutions to the issue on the 'Ask The Lawyer' show run on Pravo TV.


The lawyer has reminded that the issue of registration of the place of residence of individuals (including children) is addressed by the Rules as approved by Cabinet's Resolution No. 207 of 2 March 2016.

If the parents are registered at different addresses, the place of residence of the child will be registered at the address of one of the parents only if the other parent gives his or her written consent thereto.

There are two ways to give the abovementioned consent: by either 1) filing a personal statement specifying that the other parent has no objection to the registration, which statement should be executed in the presence of the person who accepts it, or 2) obtaining a notarised consent of the other parent.

But if the parents fail to reach an agreement, the place of residence of the child must be determined by court. In this case, the registration is made in accordance with the judgment.

Please be reminded that Ms Varienikova previously specified three solutions to the issue about whom of the parents the child should stay with.
