Abstract

The study seeks to find common and different features in approaches used by Ukrainian and Latvian legislators to regulate family relations, and to suggest how to develop family legislation of Ukraine. For this end, the following methods of scientific inquiry have been used: analysis, analogy, deduction, induction, synthesis, historical and legal, comparative and legal, legal modeling methods. It was found out that the Republic of Latvia lacks some legislative solutions in respect of which Ukraine has law enforcement practice. This study offers to supplement the Family Code of Ukraine with the provision saying that a marriage shall be considered not concluded unless it was registered by a civil registration officer. Considering the Latvian experience, the legislative support for appointing co-guardians in Ukraine has been proven expedient.
