Being a parent is one thing; being a solo parent is another one, and people who are taking care of their children all by themselves have to play multiple roles all at once. Since the demands of being solo parents are exhausting—physically, mentally, and emotionally—they will definitely need all the help they can get.

And who’s better suited to aid parents who fly solo in their plight than the government? With that in mind, what are the steps undertaken by the government to make sure that solo parents can get the support that they need?

Introducing Republic Act 8972

Fortunately, there is a way that the government aids single parents to make sure that single parents are never alone in their struggles of being the sole provider for their children in the form of Republic Act 8092 or the Solo Parents’ Welfare Act of 2000. Made into a law under the term of former President Joseph Estrada, the goal of this law is to give the government the power to provide comprehensive programs, services, and other benefits for solo parents and their children.

What can you say about this new Republic Act?

Honestly, this is a very good law to support solo parents. I just hope that employers, as well as the government, can implement it well.

So who is considered a solo parent ?
According to this law, Excerpt:

1. A woman who gives birth as a result of rape and other crimes against chastity even without a final conviction of the offender, provided that mother keeps and raises the child.

2. Parent left solo or alone with the responsibility of parenthood due to the following circumstances:

- Due to death of a spouse.
- Spouse is detained or is serving a sentence for a criminal conviction for at least one (1) year.
- Physical and/or mental incapacity of a spouse as certified by a public medical practitioner.
- Legal separation or de facto separation from spouse for at least one (1) year, as long as he/she is entrusted with the custody of the children.
- 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.

3. Unmarried mother/father who has preferred to keep and rear her/his child/children instead of having others care for them or give them up to a welfare institution.

4. Any other person who solely provides parental care and support to a child or children.

5. Any family member who assumes the responsibility of the head of the family as a result of the death, abandonment, disappearance or prolonged absence of the parents or solo parent.

I don't agree with some of the solo parent qualifications.

Hindi ata tama ang mga eto:

2. Parent left solo or alone with the responsibility of parenthood due to the following circumstances:

- Spouse is detained or is serving a sentence for a criminal conviction for at least one (1) year.

- Legal separation or de facto separation from spouse for at least one (1) year, as long as he/she is entrusted with the custody of the children.

- 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.

3. Unmarried mother/father who has preferred to keep and rear her/his child/children instead of having others care for them or give them up to a welfare institution.

4. Any other person who solely provides parental care and support to a child or children.


These are all people who CHOOSE to be a solo parent.
They are NOT victims of circumstance.
Therefore, they should carry their responsibilities on their own.

Huh!??

Matagal nang implemented ito, kay president Erap pa, year 2000.

I have already availed this. Ang naging useful lang sa akin is the leave benefit.

Yung mga discounts, housing - I don’t qualify since I am not indigent and there’s an income qualification (lampas nga lang ako).

I hope someone amends this law up to 21 or 22 years of age. Kasi karamihan naman nagpapaaral ng college degree. My kid is already 18, senior high and still dependent on me pero hindi na covered.

I have absolutely nothing against single parents, and I strongly support the government Act that aids solo parents. The only problem I have is that there should be a distinct definition of who qualifies to benefit from it. I also feel that those who are solo parents by choice should not be treated any differently from those who share parenting rsponsibilities. Only victims of circumstances like those who spouses have passed away are the ones who genuinely ned this kind of support
