According to Article 88, of the 2014 Law on Marriage and Family, the common children of the husband and wife, also known as children during the marriage period, include:
- Children born during the marriage period. That is, the child is born when its father and mother are husband and wife;
- Children conceived by the wife during the marriage period. That is, the child is born when its parents’ marriage has terminated, but the wife was pregnant during the marriage period.
In this case, the law only admits the child as the common child during the marriage period if he/she is born within 300 days from the date of the death of its parent or the date of its parents’ divorce.
- Children born prior to the date of marriage registration and accepted by their parents. That is, the child is born when its parents have not been recognized by the law to be husband and wife. In this case, it is based on the voluntary acceptance of the parents to determine that they are the common children.
