The child’s relatives will have to pay 50% of the living wage

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in the first reading adopted bill No. 3881, which increased the minimum guaranteed amount of child support. About this, with reference to the data of the website of the parliament, the portal PI reports on Wednesday, March 3.

339 deputies voted for the bill, no one opposed.

The document provides that the additional alimony obligations that are imposed on the child’s relatives in the event that his parents cannot pay alimony must be at least 50% of the subsistence minimum. Prior to this, the legislative norm allowed to collect from relatives no more than 30% of the subsistence minimum for a child of the corresponding age.

Back in 2017, the law established a norm according to which parents must pay at least 50% of the subsistence minimum per child. The document did not provide for an increase in payments from relatives. Now the minimum guaranteed amount of alimony, regardless of who pays it, will be 50%.

Earlier, the information and analytical portal PI reported how the size of alimony payments for a child will change in 2021.
