"The law provides for the same legal status and rights for women as for men. All property acquired during marriage is joint property. The government enforced these laws somewhat effectively. The NGO SOS noted, however, that women often had trouble in defending their property rights in divorce proceedings due to the widespread public belief that property belongs to the man. Sometimes women ceded their inherited property and inheritance rights to male relatives due to tradition and pressure from their families.

Women continued to experience discrimination...more

"Non-payment of alimony puts single-parent families into a crisis that is further worsened in situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, because parents lose their jobs, have lower income and their livelihoods are threatened.

"The Family Law of Montenegro stipulates that the court may, following a decision in a non-litigation procedure, restrict the parental right of a parent who negligently performs their rights or duties towards the child. From the reasons established by the Law for which the parental right is limited, it is obvious that the children are not separated from the mother due to her disability" (23).
