For the resident of Slovyansk ending the marriage with her husband, who remained in the so-called DPR and to apply for the child care benefit proved to be difficult.

The lawyer of the Slovyansk office of the Legal Development Network revealed outstanding professional and detective abilities to help the woman assert her rights.
Military conflict in Eastern Ukraine influences retired people. They can obtain social aid from the state and benefactors on the territory controlled by Ukraine. Community Law Centers provide free legal aid. For example, lawyers helped pensioner Viktor Pavlovych Malyshev* to restore his passport.
Community Law Centers do not only provide free legal consultations but also help vulnerable categories of people to get all kind of help. For example, IDPs who are now in a dire situation can get help with food, clothes and habitation at local Community Law Centers. Slovyansk Community Law Center’s lawyer has helped a young family from Luhansk.
