Disputes concerning a child

The parents have equal rights and duties towards the child. The parents must address the child related matters, especially those related to child care and upbringing, by consensus. Both parents have equal duty to take care of the child, regardless of whether the parents live together in the marriage (without being married), or are divorced (have not been married) and live separately from each other.

However, sometimes parents fail to resolve all issues related to their children by consensus. Parental disputes over children usually arise when they do not agree on:

- the place of residence of the child;

- access to the child when the couple is separated;

- access of the child to the close relatives.
