Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (USA)
I have filed for divorce from my wife who is a Russian citizen. We were married in the US and I was looking for a way to service her with the papers when I found your site. About 4 years ago, she took the kids to Russia to visit her mother like she had done every summer, but when they were supposed to come home, she kept them there claiming her mother was too infirm to live on her own. She has since been unwilling to discuss any other arrangements and has refused to bring the kids here to visit. As a result, my youngest daughter - about to turn 6 cannot speak English and I do not speak Russian, so we've never been able to have a conversation and my parents have been virtually cut off from their granddaughters.

I was under the impression I had no recourse under Russian law, but I need to try anything possible.

Divorce is basically a nuclear option. After twice offering to bring the kids for visits and refusing without any explanation or dialog, I started withholding support which is the only card I can play to try and get her to do anything. My wife earns good money, so the kids are not going without unless you consider my oldest daughter might have more private tennis lessons with my support. There is more to the story, but I have only spent 6 weeks total with my daughters in the past 4 years (they are 6 and 10) and this situation is completely unbearable to me which is why I started divorce proceedings. Are there any statutes under Russian law that could help me?

thanks

I am a US 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 2002. Early 2003, she moved back to Russia with our infant child. They returned to the USA in 2005, and we lived together until they left again in 2007. 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 St. Petersburg. 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.

Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Ukraine)
I am an American Citizen, my wife is a Ukrainian Citizen. We have a 2 year old baby that was born in Ukraine, yet is an American Citizen like myself. My daughter V has a United States Citizen Passport. Recently my wife left the United States with my daughter V to visit her mother/grandmother in Ukraine. They were scheduled to travel for one (1) month and three (3) weeks. Wife and daughter are scheduled to return to the United States on August 1. I spoke to (Wife) recently and she told me she is going to stay in Ukraine indefinately. She does not wish to return to the United States. In Ukraine she has no employment and very little resources. I'm worried they might disappear without my knowledge.

My problem is very serious because we have a 2 year old daughter. Wife is basically kidnapping my daughter.

Is my wife breaking the law if she stays in Ukraine without my consent to leave my daughter there? Can we consider this an Abduction case? I am still married to her in the State of Florida. Its still to pre-mature to tell if she is really serious about all of this because of the travel dates.

I however consider this a serious issue. Children are not toys you can play with.

How can I get custody of my daughter? Would I be able to monitor my daughters whereabouts in Ukraine or else where? Please advise urgently,

Hi Karina,

I was married in June 2013 with Russian lady. She came to Canada and we
registered our marriage in Canada, Ontario province. After 4 weeks she went back home. Sometime after I found that all was fake and decide to start divorce the June 2016 going via Canadian court. Unfortunately family law was changed and all divorce cases now handling required Service under the Hague Convention which is extremely complicated and time consuming. I found meantime another woman and would like to marry her.

I know that divorce in Russia is not so complicated and can be done much faster. We being together only 4 weeks and after that she never come to Canada, we don’t have any common properties, business, etc. No child. I never submitted spouse support application for her to Canada Immigration.

Do you know if it will be possible for me to get divorce with her in Russia despite the fact that marriage was registered in Canada? BTW – I am not Russian citizen.

Sincerely,

Hi Karina,

I need to consider all possible situations before going ahead, submitting a divorce. It is
a very serious topic.

I think I can try to solve this situation pacifically because there is still the option to go and living in Russia in several years.

But there is something worries me. If i keep living and working in Germany.
My wife can request a divorce in Russia when the child will be one year old.
And later request a child support. My question is.

1 - Child support is always 1/4 of my incomes? If i live in EUROPE and every time I need to visit my soon i need to pay
the travel (VISA, Fly Tickets ....), I will not be able to do that. this Child support can not be a lower quantity? And then I pay
extra money because I want to do that

2 - If i do not agree with the "Child Support" value of the Russian Judge and I do not pay it entirely (For example 50%). Russia is not in the "Hague Convention for child support" can they force me in Europe to pay it?

Hello Ms. Duvall,

I just sent an email through the web site. However, I was not sure
where it was sent. I wanted to make sure to contact you from your
personal email as well.

Long story short, I live in UK and married my wife in 2014. my son UK citizen (3 years old) child has been abducted to Moscow, Russia by his mom who is mentally unstable. Unfortunately she is not stable to take care of herself let alone our son!

I have been awarded with the sole custody of our son here in UK based on her medical records!

I would like to know how I can get this recognized in Russian court. She knew that she would not be given the custody of our son here in UK, that`s why she abducted him to Russia!

My wife is not even showing me my son. Last time when she called, she said she has a court date coming up which is 20th of December 2017.

I would like to get on a consultation call with you as soon as possible. I would like to talk to you what options we have, and what can we do in Russian court!

When can we do the consultation?
How much are you charging for 1 hour consultation over phone?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello

My Russian wife and I wish to get a divorce. I have given her about 120,
000 USD since we were married and I do not want to try to recover this money. She can keep it. We just want a divorce. We have no property to divide and we have no children.

Please let me know what we must do to get a divorce. She lives in St. Petersburg and her and I together spend time in Dubai although we are both only in Dubai under tourist visas. I am a Canadian Citizen.

I do not wish to go to Russia to get a divorce. We have an embassy of Russia in Dubai that we can submit paperwork to get divorce.

Regards,

I am a UK citizen, living in the UK with a Russian wife. Sadly, we are starting the process to file for divorce and to do this we need a copy of our Russian marriage certificate. We cannot locate the original copy of our certificate. However, we do have a photocopy, please see attached scan.

I understand from your website, that you are able to obtain originals from the local ZAGS. Is that possible? What would you need form me in order to carry out this task?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter.
