Local Authorities’ Involvement in Fulfilling the Minor Children Maintenance Obligation, in Protecting and Promoting Children’s Rights

Daniel BUDA


The present article aims to analyze the role of the local authorities in overseeing the fulfi lment of the minor children maintenance obligation by their parents but also, in protecting and promoting children’s rights. The research highlights the fact that the liability for growth and ensuring child development lies primarily with the parents, but also local government authorities have the duty to assist parents in achieving their obligations towards the child, developing and ensuring diversifi ed, affordable and quality services which meet the child’s needs. Last but not least, on the basis of some practical cases presented, we issue some recommendations regarding the way in which the community and the state could improve local authorities’ work.
