Family Codes supports a new family construction model

"The history of people is not only written with their DNA but also with their emotions", emphasizes Leonardo Pérez Gallardo, Doctor of Juridical Sciences, to judges, lawyers, notaries, and other legal operators in Las Tunas.

With a similar scientific degree and rank in the same university, Yamila González Ferrer, for her part, insists on the need for a change of mentality that transforms into action the principles enshrined in a legal norm that made transparent the country we are and outlined the one we dream of, also in family matters.
