Whether a husband can go abroad if his wife is pregnant with a third child: lawyer's explanation
Ukraine is under martial law and general mobilisation, during which men aged 18 to 60 who are liable for military service are prohibited from crossing the border. However, there are certain categories of Ukrainians who can travel abroad during martial law. These are men with 3 or more dependent children under the age of 18.
Rostyslav Kravets, the head of Kravets & Partners Law Association, told us whether a man whose wife is pregnant with their third child will be able to leave Ukraine. According to him, a man whose wife is pregnant with a third child will be able to travel abroad if he can prove it with documents.

"It also depends on the trimester of pregnancy the wife is in. Usually, the gestation period should be at least 35 weeks. Then the husband will be able to cross the border, because it will be considered that he already has three children," the expert explained.
In addition, if a man has three or more children born to different wives, but he pays alimony regularly and without arrears, such a citizen will also be able to travel abroad.
