Order of the Court of Cassation, VI Civil Section, No. 15025 of 7 September 2012

The  presence of emergency or extraordinary situations is not a requirement for the concession of a temporary residence permit to a minor’s parent as set forth in Article 31 of the legislative decree No. 286  of 1998 (Consolidated Act on Immigration) since the damage suffered by the minor owing to the separation from his parents or the severance from his family encompasses every actual, concrete, perceptible and objectively severe damage.
