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
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.
