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

I found the website and your info after googling.

I would like to consult few things
for my friend who is about to going through the divorce.

He is Russian citizen and so is his wife.They have a daughter about 9 years old. But already no love between them and he wants to move on to another life. The kid will be living with the mother.

I read online about the alimony will be 25% of the annual income.

However, as I know he doesn't want to take the apartment properties, and he has been giving money monthly to his wife to make sure his wife and kid has the sufficient money to make a living, and the money is much above the average salary normal people have.

So, is that possible that we can convince the judge about this continuous payment will be made for kid, instead of the 25% of the annual income, like making some both-satisfied agreement? Since his work is all about temporary project work, which means sometimes he has no job at all and this unemployment time can last for 1 year, then how can he pay the alimony to the kid.

Can you help answer this question.

Also what is your charge of the case and how long it normally takes to complete the divorce.

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

As you will see in the attached order from a American court, my children
have been illegally taken from United States by their mother to Russia in the summer of 2019. They currently reside in Moscow.

My short-term objective is to be able to communicate with my kids, which has not happened since last September. My mid-term objective is to secure visitation rights in Russia, and be able to have my daughters spend summertime in the United States. My long-term objective is to bring children back to United States.

I am planning a trip to Moscow in February to see my daughters, but the mother is not aware of it. She does not know I have her address. I would like to prepare the file before my trip, and serve the mother with the papers after I have seen my daughters. I plan on seeing them without their mother's knowledge. It is unrealistic to expect her to cooperate. If she learns anything about my trip or the legal proceedings, she will disappear and I will not see my daughters.

I am aware that Russia and USA have no partnership agreement under the Hague Convention. Please let me know if you can help me.

Questions of registration and citizenship (Russia)

Family law : divorce and division of property. (Russia)
Thank you for your email. I need to know if my wife has any right to divorce me in the UK having been deported for using a dead woman's passport. I know she can not return to the UK, but can she still direct UK lawyers to act on her behalf?

It would be pointless to begin Russian proceeding when she has already started in the UK. I have been delayed because I do not have an address for her. She is now aware of what I want to which she said she wants to be divorced in the UK (for obvious reasons).

How eligible is she to get a divorce in a country that deported her for fraud?

Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)
I have not seen my Russian wife for over two years she walked out of my house with all her belongings over 3yrs ago. I have asked for a divorce on several occasions to which she asks for me to do things before she will divorce me. On one occasion she said that i have got to get her a Schengen visa before she can start thinking about giving me a divorce. Now she wants me to pay her a divorce settlement and also pay for her solicitor. Recently she has asked me to help her get back into the UK, she was arrested and imprisoned and deported from the UK for using a passport that belonged to a deceased woman. A year after she left my home I traveled to the UK and met a woman who fell pregnant and has had my child. My wife is insisting that that was cheating and I must pay for it. Where do I stand with this, I would like to divorce in Moscow, but she says she wants to divorce in the UK. She took all the marriage paperwork with her when she left my house in Moscow 3 months after we were married. We have no children and we have no properties or businesses together, what do i owe her and how can i get a divorce from her in Moscow without having the papers of our marriage. How do I avoid divorcing in the UK, my wife is currently living in Russia and I am in the UK. Can she instruct UK lawyers, has she got the right to? Thank you

I hope you are keeping well, thanks for all your help with my divorce from Natalia.
the divorce has gone through months ago Natalia thinks she can claim money from me. She has been talking to her sister who has been encouraging her.
She wants to go to the British Embassy in Russia and complain that I should buy her and her son from a previous marriage a house.
She is also threatening to fly to South Africa to argue with my mother for money.
Does Natalia have any grounds to make a successful claim seeing we are divorced ?
Natalia was living in Moscow where it was much cheaper to live. She has now moved to St. Petersburg where things are far more expensive and is demanding I buy her an apartment.
Natalia contacted my brothers ex-wife in South Africa who then warned me that Natalia was causing trouble,

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

I am a UK citizen, who married in Russia, a Russian citizen, in 2001. She moved
to the USA with me, in 2001, and we had a child late 2001. Early 2002, she moved back to Russia with our infant child. They returned to the USA in 2004, and we lived together until they left again in 2006. I have visit them in Russia, however, nether my daughter or wife had returned to the USA since 2006. I have since come to find out my wife was unfaithful. So now I would like to dissolve the marriage.

Is there any grounds to annul due to the fact we haven't leaved together for over 10 years? or Due to the fact that when we got married, the marriage license was obtained fraudulently. We needed to have it within a week, and something was done to make this happen, otherwise we would have had to wait 32 days. Anyway, is there away to annul the marriage because the license was obtained fraudulently??

The marriage took place in Moscow. How much would it cost to court file? I mean, my understanding is, it has to be court filed since there is a minor child. Is that correct? Also, if my wife agrees to the dissolution, my understanding is that the divorce can be pushed through without the child custody/money issues attached, and they can be dealt with separately. Is this correct?

Also, how much does it cost to obtain my marriage certificate? I need the original for US immigration purposes as well as the divorce. My wife has an original, but, so far she hasn't sent it to me.

Thank you,

I found your name and activity through your website.

I am British and married to a Russian,
we have been married just over 3 years. Unfortunately we are separated since August this year.
My wife resides in Moscow with our son aged 2 Years and 3 months.
I am not allowed to have unsupervised access to him when I visit Moscow every month.

I notice you represent people from the USA, do you also cover the UK?

The action and assistance I require would be in Russia.

Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Russia)
I'm from Germany and I have a young daughter in Moscow. Her mother and I never lived together and we were not married. We got into, what is basically a stupid, conflict about a year ago (I wrote very detailed account for the lawyer who will represent my case). During past year I was blocked for several months from contacting my daughter. I traveled to Moscow a few times in order to try to solve things by diplomacy. Every time things would progress and then deteriorate fast when I returned to my home in Germany.

Basically, I just want some time alone with my daughter during vacation and normal visitation rights without restrictions that my ex is imposing at the moment. My ex insists on being present to every activity of my daughter and me. She is also not willing to let my daughter visit me in many for vacation. The ironic thing is that I'm regular with paying child support (voluntarily, since no paper has been signed at any point), I have no criminal record of any kind and no history of any mental diseases or addictions and I was never aggressive or even raised a voice to my daughter. What's more I agreed on paying my ex vacation in Germany (not with me and my daughter, of course) just to try and solve
things diplomatically.

I've read Russian family law and based on that I sent my ex my proposal for parental agreement but she is doing everything but she is stalling me for weeks now and I might as well start preparing for legal battle.

What are my chances of winning a court case? Is it possible for my daughter to visit me in Germany during vacations? It must be noted that Germany signed Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and what is more our police is very diligent in enforcing it so there is no chance for me to abduct my daughter (not as
if I would wish to do something like that).

So, would you be interested in taking my case and what are your tariffs? Since there is still at least a minute chance my ex and I could come to agreement, could you then help providing me with proper legal form of such agreement?

In case we agree on terms of your legal services and you become my legal representative I already prepared very detailed account and summary of the whole circumstances leading to this situation and I summarized every relevant point that could be used in the judicial proceedings.
