Aside from the Family Code, the Solo Parents’ Welfare Act of 2000, a fairly landmark legislation, confers some rights and benefits on single moms who have qualified as solo parents. The following is a list of the rights and benefits of single moms compiled from both:
1. Child custody. Children below seven years old shall not be separated from their mother, unless the court finds compelling proof to grant custody to the father.
2. Child Support single moms can demand support for her child/children from the father. Article 195 of the Family Code states that parents are obliged to support their illegitimate children.
3. Surname illegitimate children as a rule shall use the surname of the mother,. However, with father’s acknowledgement, the mom can opt to name her child using the father’s surname.
