If it is a matter of collecting alimony and the child’s father lives abroad, then the relevant international agreements and conventions apply to such cases:
It is worth considering not only foreign parents but also those who are citizens of Ukraine but live or work abroad. It so happens that in most countries, in some cases, alimony is calculated not only from wages but also from unemployment benefits, which greatly simplifies judicial practice. When making an application for alimony from a father who is located outside of Ukraine, it is desirable to specify the maximum number of data to you: the place of residence, the amount of salary, the desired number of payments, etc.
If we take into account the peculiarities of Ukrainian legislation, the plaintiff can safely apply at the place of residence. In other words, you can submit an application both in Ukraine and abroad. In this case, the decision of our court can be transferred to the Ministry of justice of your area of residence. Before doing this, you must translate the document into the language of the country to which it will be sent. The Ministry of justice itself handles the forwarding.
Alimony is calculated in the debtor’s country. The state authorities of the other country must decide on payments within one month. Therefore, a month after sending the documents, you must visit the Ministry of justice to find out about the decision. Be prepared for the fact that there may be a need for additional documents or correction of inaccuracies in already prepared ones.
