I would be grateful if you could provide advice on the following since you assisted me with my recent divorce from Maria:

Is there any way (in court or via Russian Social Services) that I can have my ex-wife psychotically assessed as I believe my son is not being cared for correctly? If you want I can send you a few attachments of her emails t show that my son is not well taken care of over there and it is to her best interest to be with me in the US.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.

I am desperately looking for help in bringing back my daughter in the USA. I was married to Russian lady and have a daughter from the marriage. After our divorce, my ex-wife took my daughter to Russia. Now my daughter is suffering there as she is not feeding her and not taking care of her well. I would like someone to represent me in Russian court (St. Petersburg). Please, let me know if you can help me.

I know my chance is very small. I also know you can't guarantee me result. However, due to the fact that her mother is not able to take care of her, I would like to go to Russian court and see if I can get my daughter to come back to the US.

I did manage to hire a Lawyer in my x wife's city to get the divorce done. It cost me only 500.00 US Dollars. Thanks for your help. One question I do have is when a couple divorce in Russia is there custody agreements for children. Just wondering if I need to get such a paper for my new Russian wife from her x husband. Her youngest son is immigrating to Canada with her. We have papers signed and notarized saying he agrees to let boy come and understands he will never see him again and that I will be his father.

I met an Russian woman on an international dating site. I went to see her in her town and after a week she proposed to me to get married, so I could apply for the vise on behalf her to come to the US. The "marriage ceremony" in the local courthouse was suspiciously short and some money was given without a receipt...

So we were married, and I applied for the I-130 spouse visa, but I needed a divorce certificate from her. She sent me a divorce certificate that was dated seven days prior our marriage certificate, signed by the same money recipient clerk.

I was suspicious, so I went to Moscow unannounced and knocked on her apartment door, guess who opened: the ex hubby!

I am a victim of a scam. She just needed a visa to the US. All of this happened in August 2010.

Is this "marriage" legal? What should I do to get rid of this marriage certificate?

Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)
I would need a consultation, not about divorce, but about marriage. I am Canadian, my fiance lives in Russia. We'd like to get married in Costa Rica, partly in order to avoid bureacracy in Russia and 30 days waiting period.
Is there any problem, from the Russian law point of view, regarding such marriage in a foreign country?
Are there any complications which can arrive in the future? For instance, if there is a divorce (I'm very hopeful it won't be one, but still, I must ask).
Does the marriage need to be registered at the local Zags? What if she changes the name after marriage?
If we decide though to get married in Russia, is there any way in which you or someone you know could facilitate the marriage there?
Please let me know what is the required fee and the payment modality for the consultation.

Family law : divorce and division of property. (Russia)
I am in the process of divorcing in U.S.A. a Russian citizen. During the marriage (3 years) 2 new-built apartments were purchased in her name with funds I mostly provided. I do not know their addresses.

Can their addresses be found by title (or other) search? Either she or her mother are the owners of record.

My understanding is that by Russian law she is unable to sell these properties while married without my written agreement: is this true? And is there a way to put a charge or lien on the properties so that any buyer would be certain to know that the property could not be sold without my agreement?

Any other advice in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to seek legal advice on behalf of my brother. He is willing to get a divorce but he is in a complicated situation and does not know where to seek help and legal assistance.

Here is his story: my brother is an American citizen. In 2008, he married a Russian woman in St. Petersburg, a babygirl was born in 2009 in St. Petersburg, the baby is both American and Russian.

Due to serious reasons, my brother wants now to divorce. However, my brother is very attached to his 18 months old daughter and is afraid that his divorce will prevent him from seeing her. Indeed, my brother and his current wife live in Russia where they got married.

My brother does not speak Russian and it is very hard to find English speaking lawyers in St. Petersburg.

As he got married in Russia, he assumes that he will have to divorce in Russia, not in United States, is this right?

Also, if he divorces in Russia, do you know what the procedures are and what the chances are for him to get the shared custody for his daughter? He is ready to stay in Russia after the divorce just for the sake of his relationship with his daughter. He is very attached to her and is a fantastic father.

The main issue for my brother is the child's custody, how can he be sure that he will get a shared custody from Russian courts?

I hope you can provide me with some replies and legal advice as this is quite urgent.

If you need more details on this case, do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks in advance for your kind reply.

This is the issue!

My wife has a first residence permit to stay 2 years in Holland
and then she can have extension on the permit without any problem.

But as she is divorced from her former husband since many years and he is living with his new wife in France since some years with a working permit there. He is also an Russian citizen.

They have a boy together that is 6 years old and the father don't pay any attention anytime to his son, only his mother the grandmother wants to see his sons son.

We have been trying to get the boy Leonid's father to sign a document that allows us to take Leonid with us to Holland.

But for about little more than one year he has refused to sign such a paper.

Now since 6 months he said that he will write this document when he comes back to Russia for some holyday.

First he said that he would come in August this year, but then he didn't had any time because very much work load. Now he says that he for certain will come at Christmas time and sign this paper.

The issue now is that a lawyer today said to my wife Svetlana, that now it's not possible to write a permission that allows her son to be in Holland more than one year. After this year she said that we need a new permission to stay in Holland and also have to come back to Russia to sign such a new permission document?

We now wonder if this is correct, even if his father agrees on that Leonid can live in Holland. The issue is also that it's much more easy to travel between France and Holland as both countries are members of the European Union. This will be good for both parties.

If this is the case with the permission, how can we proceed to solve this as we want Leonid to go in school here in Holland and live with us!

We don't have anything against that Leonids father can visit his son or see him.
My wife is also very worried about if she can trust the father's family and if she also agree to sign a look-a-like document that allows his father to take Leonid to France, will they allow him to come back!

The son Leonid don't want to stay with his father, and that can be because he has earlier mismanaged the time when he had his son. He didn't take care of him properly and did drink a lot of alcohol and didn't take any notice of his boy.

Please help us and direct us with this matter!
