The prosecutor’s office of Tatarstan gave recommendations to residents of the republic on how to preserve the marriage and the family budget if one of the spouses suffers from addictions. The supervisory authority said that one of the spouses has the right to go to court with a claim to declare the other spouse incapacitated. Thus, the issue can be resolved if the spouse is addicted to gambling, abuses alcohol or drugs, which puts his family in a difficult financial situation (Article 30 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation). Such a spouse will be able to independently make only small household transactions, the rest – only with the consent of the trustee. And the trustee will receive and spend the salary, pension and other income of the spouse himself.
