How to take a child into custody

It is necessary

  • - passport;
  • - certificate of wages or a copy of the declaration of income;
  • - certificate of family composition;
  • - a copy of the financial personal account from the place of residence (extract from the house book);
  • - medical report on the state of health;
  • - certificate of no criminal record;
  • - a copy of the marriage certificate (for those who are married);
  • - written consent of all family members of the candidate (over 10 years old) to accept the child into the family;
  • - act of inspection of housing conditions.


Step 1

Guardianship over a child is established by a decision of the guardianship and guardianship authorities. If you dared to take such a responsible act, contact your local authorities by writing a statement with a corresponding request. To resolve the issue of custody, you will need to submit a package of certain documents.

Step 2

Ask the employer for a certificate that should indicate your position, as well as the average salary for the last twelve months. For non-working citizens, you will need a document confirming income, and the pensioner must attach a copy of the pension certificate or a certificate from the territorial body of the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation. Of course, it can also be a certificate from another body providing pension provision.

Step 3

Take a medical examination and get a statement on your health condition. It must be issued in accordance with the procedure established by the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation. If the adoptive parent has certain diseases, the guardianship authorities have the right to refuse to issue guardianship. Contact the internal affairs body at your place of residence for a certificate confirming that you have no criminal record for a deliberate crime against the health and life of citizens.

Step 4

First of all, the guardianship and guardianship authorities are guided by the interests of children. A child who has turned 10 years old is transferred to a foster family only with his consent. The adult family members who live with you should also be willing to apply for guardianship. They must confirm their consent in writing. Be sure to consider the opinions of your own children over the age of ten.

Step 5

The guardianship and guardianship authorities are obliged to examine the living conditions in which the child will live, drawing up an appropriate act on this. On a gratuitous basis, they will request from the authorized bodies all the necessary certificates on the compliance of your apartment or house with technical and sanitary rules and regulations. Within 15 working days from the date of submission of the application, the necessary documents and the examination certificate, the guardianship authorities will make a decision and prepare a conclusion on the possibility (impossibility) of appointment as a trustee. You have the right to appeal a negative conclusion in court, just make sure that all documents are returned to you together with the refusal.
