The Ministry of Justice has registered the order on amendments and additions to the Instruction on the procedure of record-keeping in civil registration bodies.
In accordance with amendments, now, if you miss the deadline for registration of birth, an application for a birth certificate of a child under the age of 16 years is submitted:
– by parents of the child;
– if there is a legal marriage between the parents, by one of them;
– by other interested person on the basis of a power of attorney;
– by persons replacing parents, or officials of bodies of guardianship.
Previously, such an application could only be submitted by the child’s parents.
