Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Russia)
I have a challenge that I have to solve - my minor child was taken away to Russia, and I don't know how to get her back. My divorce here has been finalized, and I have been granted a full custody.

Would it be possible for us to schedule a call to discuss?

Is it more favorable for me to get a divorce or to prevent it?

If I should
try to divorce, where should I do it? And if I get divorce in one country, for example Russia, will all the others have to accept the decisions as per custody, alimony etc?

Is it possible to get a divorce without the consent of both sides in Russia, and do we have to be in or visit Russia?

If we get divorce in Russia, what will be the possible decisions of the court, if we prove alcoholism and what if we can't prove alcoholism? Alimony, custody, division of property/wealth, and others.

How can we prove alcoholism? Especially if we will not be in Russia during the divorce process?

What will be the effects of the decision of the court in Russia on the property abroad? For example if Russia decides the goods/properties should be divided, how will this be done in United States?

1) Can you clarify to me the discrepancy about the Hague convention? Why if Russia is a signatory country, they are allowing her to apply for divorce, when she haven't resided in Russia for several years. If she's using the registration on her parents address to prove her habitual residency, isn't it illegal? Some sort of fraud? What can be done in that case?

As far as I know, even if she applies for divorce in Russia, it won't be recognized internationally by the convention, as it didn't abide to the stipulations (this was what I talked with the lawyers on international family law in Canada).

2) Is it true that once she applies, even if I don't agree on her terms and don't sign her petition, they give I believe 3 months of concealing time, after which they can rule on her favor? Why would that be?

3) We never lived or intended to live in Russia, She even activated her Canadian residence and all along the year we've been planifying it, it was just in May when she backed off.

4) I never gave her express permission to take my daughter away from China, wouldn't that be a wrongful removing?

5) I believe there are several options that I can resource from (Human Rights, Hague convention, etc...).

6) What are the chances of making this case successful?

7) What would be the cost involved for following the full case?

I am hoping you will be able to assist with what the correct process is to seek a legal separation from my wife who is Russian. Our circumstances are the following:

- I am a Dual Citizen of Australia and USA. I am resident in Australia; ex is in New York, soon to return to Russia
- Married in St Petersburg in 2008
- Separated for 1 year and 8 months
- Have no children
- Amicable separation
- Joint asset is an apartment in joint names in Australia

I have 2 main questions:

1. how I should dissolve the marriage, whether this needs to take place in Russia, Australia and United States?

2. How to formalize the separation of assets/wealth - I wish to propose an amount (which we agreed verbally) and ensure . What is law in Russia with regards to what she is legally entitled to. Ideally I wish to do this ASAP and prior to the divorce.

Please could you also confirm your services and how you could assist in drafting a separation letter, arranging legal divorce in Russia/UK.

thanks in advance.

As we planning to have a baby, if in future we get separated/divorced what are the possibilities to child being with me? Is it possible to have a condition about future children on the prenuptial agreement?

So, the question is, what will happen if she goes to Russia?

As both Russia and United
States are part to the Hague Convention, will Russia recognize the American court's provisional decision and give the kids to me? Or in practice it doesn't work that way?

I would need detailed information based on concrete info from the Russian law, because how I will act here depends completely on your answers.

Many thanks in advance :)

Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)
I am an British Citizen. I left London 12 years ago and working for an international company since, with various assignments.

I married a Russian girl in July 2012 - Catholic Ceremony - NO civil Marriage. We currently live & work now in China and will both be here on work permits shortly.

We are now expecting a baby boy in July 2013. In order for the bay boy to have my surname - we must be married (i.e Civil marriage). We are currently NOT civilly married in any country.

So, we are traveling to Moscow in March to get civil marriage. My wife is preparing the paper works. I have got a notarized letter in British confirming that I have never been married.

Could you provide some advise on British Citizen (myself) getting married to a Russian Citizen in Russia. i.e in the event of a problem what is the Divorce law in Russia; and are there any course where an application could be made within the British court system?
