Who Are Qualified for Solo Parent Benefits?

Parent left solo or alone with the responsibility of parenthood due to declaration of nullity or annulment of marriage as decreed by a court or by a church as long as he/she is entrusted with the custody of the children;

An annulment puts into perspective, not only the nullification of the couple’s relationship as husband and wife, but also the proper identification of their rights and responsibilities over their conjugal obligations. However, there would be cases when one of them would falter from delivering his or her share of the financial support, and the other would be left alone to fill the gap.

Find out if you could qualify for Solo Parent benefits; visit the nearest DSWD office in your area.
