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