Answers on a lawyer: Child allowances in Cyprus:

I am a Russian citizen, a single mother of a child Cypriots. Receive child about two years, and in January of this year, revenues benefits suddenly stopped. Versed within two months, the reasons were different: you are from a third country, not all professions accepts employment exchange etc. After a lawyer involved in the case acknowledged that there was an error and promised to restore. It was learned that each case is considered "individually." Has the status of our children? Are there any new laws?

With these aids, nothing happened, they are given as before. However, these applications are considered individually, depending on the specific situation. Moms from third countries to benefits are not only children. Status has not changed, just increased the flow of such statements and asylum.

With 2012 year families whose income exceeds 70 000 euros per year, can no longer rely on state aid.
