What are the things that if not provided for your childrenthe law will hold you accountable for?
LADIES FIRST, so let’s start by the children’s rights on the wife or the mother.
Article (20/1) of Law No. 25 for the year 1929 as amended by Law 100 for the year 1985 and Law No. 4 for the year 2005 provides for that, “Once the child reaches fifteen years of age, the mother’s right to Custody shall end. The judge shall give the child the right to choose after reaching the said age whether to remain in the custody of the mother without custody payout until the child (boy) reaches Puberty or until the child (girl) marries.
What does this mean?
This means that the first right for a children over their mother is custody, as long as she is not married to a stranger after her divorce from their father until the age of 15, and after that the child will choose who they prefer to stay with until the age of puberty for a boy or until marriage for a girl. To make everything simpler, custody means caring for the children,residing with them, protecting them from danger and caring for them at the time of illness.
The second right for children is stipulated by the law in Article 20 of Law 25 for the year 1925 as amended by Law 100 for the year 1985 which provides for that: “Each of the parents shall have the right to see their child and the grandparents shall have the same right when the parents are not present. If visitation cannot be amicably organized, the judge shall set the visitation in a place that is not physically harmful to the child. The visitation shall not be forcefully executed however if the party who hold custody did not willfully execute the visitation judgment without an excuse, that party shall receive a warning from the judge and if repeated, the judge may rule by temporarily transferring the custody with an enforceable judgment to the next person who has the right to hold custody for a period estimated by the judge.”
What does this mean?
This means that if the children are with the mother, she must allow the father to see his children once a week, and if their father is not present, the visitation rights shall transfer to the grandfather and the grandmothergrandparents. If the mother prevents them from seeing the child, the court can withdraw the custody from her and give it to the next person who has the right to hold custody.
So basically, these are the two rights that the children have on their mother, the custody and visitation rights of their father.
Children’s rights over their father:
The fathers may be upset with what we are about to say here as most of the children’s rights over their fathers, which are a lot, are financial rights or in other words expenses.
The first right is the lineage.
The lineage means that the father writes the boy in his name, and if he refuses to do so, the wife has the right to file a lineage lawsuit on her husband to compel him to write the child in his name.
The second right the children have over their father is alimony, meaning that he pays all the costs and expenses of his childrenas stipulated in Article 18 bis of Law No. 25 for the year 1929, as amended by Law No. 100 for the year 1985 which provides for that: “If the child has no money, his father will pay for his costs and expenses. The Children’s alimony shall continue to be paid by the father until the girl marries or earns sufficiently to cover her costs and expenses and until the boy turns fifteen years old and capable of covering his own costs and expenses. If the boy turns fifteen and cannot earn his living costs and expenses due to a physical or mental illness or on account of continuing his studies or his earnings are low, the father shall continue to pay for his living costs and expenses. The father shall commit to pay for the alimony of his children and providing a home for them within his capabilities while maintaining the same level they live in. The alimony of the children shall be due on the father as of the date he ceases covering their living costs and expenses.”
What are these living costs and expenses and what are their values?
The costs of food and clothing are a part of the father’s income to be paid to the mother or whoever holds custody of the children or the children is staying with to spend on them. These costs are determined according to the father’s income,hisand the children’s social level and the costs are to be paid monthly.
Value of Covers and blankets which is a sum paid monthly covering the value of the covers and the blankets that the children use which is usually a small amount.
The costs of treatment and childbirth. This item covers all that is paid by the mother or the person who holds custody during child birth or treatment of the children. Certified invoices must be submitted before the court.
The Tuition fees are the school tuition fees that the father can pay according to his income, social level, and the school that the children were enrolled in during his stay with them.
The rent value: the husband shall provide a suitable residence for the wife holding custody to reside in with the children, or give her a financial sum for renting a residence to live in with the children.
A nursing fee is an amount that the father pays to the mother if she demands it if she is breastfeeding or any other woman if the mother is not the one breastfeeding.
All of these sums are subject to the discretionary power of the court in determining its value, and the judgment can be appealed from either of the parties in case the said judgment is not accepted by either of them.
Finally, it is preferable that children’s rights are executed out of courts so that they are subjected to any psychological harm when they see their parents quarreling before courts.
