Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)
Can I register my son’s marriage after his death (he was killed) with his common-law wife? They lived together for 2.5 years. The daughter-in-law is expecting a child (8 months pregnancy). Can we give my son’s name to the child? Thank you.
It is impossible to register a marriage after death of one person. But father’s name can be given to the child. According to Art. 49 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation in case a child is born from unmarried parents, paternity shall be established by the court at request of any of the parents. The court accepts any evidence proving paternity including statement by witness including your evidence.
