Transcript II and woman concerned, it is natural that, according to Soviet law, once the only basis for the marriage is no longer there, that is, once the man and woman no longer love one another and no longer desire to live with one another, the divorce of the parties is made as easy as the contracting of the marriage. All that the husband and wife have to do is to come to an understanding that they desire to part; this they have to communicate to the proper authorities, together with their marriage certificate or a signed statement of their present married condition, and the divorce is necessarily granted them. If the divorce is requested by one side only, the matter goes before the law court of the district in which the plaintiff resides. Where there are children, or one of the parties is destitute or incapable of work, then if the parties come to an agreement on the extent of maintenance, the guardianship of the children and so on, this decision is simply registered at the court of law and henceforth has the force of a legal decision. Should the maintenance agreed upon be less than the one bearing the cost thereof is in a position to contribute, then the wife, children, or husband, as the case may be, receiving the support may appeal to a court of law to have the amount increased. If no previous agreement has been reached by the parties concerned, then the court of law decides all questions concerning the maintenance grants, the custody of the children, and so on. In cases regarding the support and custody of the children, the guilt or blame of one party or the other for the divorce is not taken into consideration, except in so far as it might affect the welfare of the child ; the only question before the court of law is the good of the children. All proceedings in connection with a divorce, maintenance grants, custody of children, &c., are free of charge to the parties concerned, and the money due on account of maintenance for children, wife, or husband, is made a first charge on the wages, income, or property of the one liable. It should be noted that the support of the children is equally the duty of mother and father, but when one or the other is destitute, ill, incapacitated, or unemployed, he or she may be exempted wholly or partially from contributing to the support of the children. This rule, which has to be observed during marriage, remains valid even after divorce. The Unmarried Mother and Her Children According to Soviet law, no difference is made between legitimate and illegitimate children. An expectant mother, if unmarried (or if the father of the future child is not the husband) and who has reason' to believe that the father of the child will not do his duty by the latter, may, not later than three months before the expected confinement, lay a declaration of the father of the child, his place of residence, &c, with the local authorities. The alleged father is then notified of this declaration, and may appeal against it within two weeks of such notification. If he does not appeal within this period, or if, having appealed, the court finds the woman justified, he has to bear his share of the costs of the confinement, the support of the child, and so on, to the same extent as if the couple had been married. In those rare cases where a woman having had relations with several men, the father cannot be indicated, then all these men arc made jointly (46)
