Step forward to the Solution of the Problem of Legally Invisible Persons

After many years of efforts, which non-governmental organizations invested in order to draw attention of the state to the difficult position of persons who failed to subsequently register in birth registry book on the grounds of the existing regulations, and find an adequate systemic solution for the problem of legally invisible persons, the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Law on Amendments to the Law on Non-Contentious Procedure on 31 August 2012.

Since those amendments prescribe the procedure for determination of date and place of birth of persons not registered in birth registry books, the adoption of this Law eliminated the first obstacle in exercise of the right to recognition and formed that basis for the registration in birth registry books for those persons who have not been able to prove the fact of their birth so far.
