I want to divorce from my husband. My child is 10 months old. I know that I have a right to child support money of 25%. Do I have a right to receive financial support for myself? I have a child-care leave at the moment. In case I have such right, what amount am I entitled to receive?
According to Art. 80, 81 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation you are entitled to receive child support money equal to 1/4 of all income until the child reaches the age of 18 years. According to Art. 89, 90 you are entitled to receive financial support from your husband or ex-husband until the child reaches the age of 3 years. Amount of your financial support shall be fixed and determined by the court on the basis of respondent’s income and other noteworthy circumstances.
