The basic premise during a divorce in Russia is that the parent living away from the child should pay child support. The Family Code requires that child support in a Russian divorce be:
- 25% of net monthly income for one child
- 33% of net monthly income for two children
- 50% of net monthly income for three or more children.
Can be raised or reduced by the court during a divorce in Russia depending on financial situation and other circumstances.
It is possible to agree on child support without having to go to court. Such an agreement requires the child support be no lower than the aforementioned percentages.
Child support is required even if you do not formally dissolve the marriage.
