An application for the registration of the birth of a child can apply not only the father or the mother is unable to make close relatives or even a representative who travels from the temporarily occupied territory of the documents. Attach any evidence of the fact of birth or death – photos, written evidence, witness statements.

«The Ministry of justice considers that this category of cases considered by the courts, is a socially sensitive, and therefore, there is every reason to believe that the Ukrainian Parliament also introduced a benefit for these citizens and exempted them from payment of court fees. We will ask the Parliament to quickly consider this bill», — concluded the Minister.
