A solo parent is somebody who is either legally separated, had a marriage annulled, left by his/her wife/husband, or those who were not married; provided that the child is in his/her custody and he/she works solely for the child.

Solo parents include those who are widowed, a husband/wife is in jail, or with a mental incapacity.

Those who are playing the role as the head of the family and supports the child because the child’s true parents are gone or away are considered solo parents.

Solo parents, also, are those who gave birth to a child because of a sin committed against the mother.
