Croatia Gay Couple Foster Care Application Rejected: Court Decision Ignored

The Social Welfare Center in Zagreb again rejected the foster care application submitted by Ivo Šegota and Mladen Kožić, who are life partners in Croatia. By doing so, they have completely disregarded the Croatian Administrative Court’s December 2019 binding judgment, which allowed the couple to become foster parents after a long two-year court battle. “We’re shocked. After the December verdict, we had started planning how we would prepare our home for children, and I had already announced to my boss that, as soon as children arrived, I would be taking a long-term unpaid leave. And then a decision from the center arrives stating that they will not respect the court’s decision. For the first half hour I kept saying, “But how is this possible?”
