Reading time: 3 min.

An important task of parents is to ensure their children the right to identification, guaranteed by international human rights standards, and to do everything possible to ensure that the child has a birth certificate, which is the basis for issuing other documents and receiving services, and also allows you to carry out legal actions and become for medical records.

In connection with the occupation of part of the Ukrainian territories, the problem of establishing the fact of birth on the territory of Ukraine and obtaining a Ukrainian-style certificate has become urgent. In this article, we will discuss how this can be done.

As you know, documents issued by authorities in the temporarily occupied territories cannot be recognized under the legislation of Ukraine and are not accepted by employees of state departments and medical institutions as official documents. In this regard, the current Civil Procedure Code of Ukraine provides for special, simplified conditions for establishing the fact of the birth of a person in the territory where the regime of martial law or state of emergency is in effect, or in the territory of Ukraine temporarily occupied.

 

The procedure for obtaining such a certificate is not complicated enough, but one of the important steps is to go to court to establish a fact of legal significance, namely, the fact of the birth of your child.

In order to start the process, it is necessary to draw up an application to establish the fact of the birth of a person in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, determined by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, which can be submitted:

  • parents;
  • relatives or their representatives;
  • other legal representatives of the child.

With regard to the jurisdiction of the case, this application can be submitted to any court in the territory controlled by Ukraine, regardless of the place of residence of the applicant. Evidence confirming the birth of a child must be added to it, for example: medical certificates, testimonies, photographs, etc.

Cases on establishing the fact of birth in the temporarily occupied territory are considered without delay from the moment such an application is received by the court. The decision of the court, adopted in cases on establishing the fact of the birth of a person in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, is subject to immediate execution.

The next step after receiving a court decision is to apply to the state registration authority for civil status acts in order to obtain a Ukrainian-style birth certificate.

Summing up the above, establishing the fact of the birth of a child in court is a rather important and relevant procedure, since it makes it possible to officially register a child, as well as receive an official document on his birth.

In practice, many nuances and questions may arise, in particular, about the peculiarities of the judicial process. By contacting the law firm "Prikhodko and Partners", you can get qualified advice, assistance in preparing and filing an application with the court, or full support at all stages until you receive your child's birth certificate.
