Parentship Registration in Israel
The Israeli Law determines that each child born to an Israeli citizen parent is an Israeli citizen by the virtue of birth.
- When the mother is an Israeli, the child will be recognized as an Israeli, subject to proof of abdominal fruit.
- If the couple is not married or living together when the father is an Israeli, the father will be required by the Ministry of Interior to submit a claim to the family Court for a guardianship deceleration.
- The court will normally require the father to provide evidence of guardianship, such as parentity test, including a DNA test to prove paternity of the child, in order to register the child as an Israeli citizen at the Ministry of Interior.
KTA has significant experience in providing legal advice and service pertaining to guardianship registration in Israel.
