Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Russia)
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.
