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

I have a difficult Russian law problem.

I am a US citizen and had a
relationship with a Russian man, the result of which was a daughter. The man did not tell me he was married and when I found out I ended the relationship.

The man is a well known businessman in Moscow. He has two older sons from his marriage.

The man and I had a verbal agreement (and I have done emails too) that he would pay child maintenance to me for my daughter, would pay for her to attend private school and pay for her university education - i.e. she was to be in the same position as his sons and enjoy the same lifestyle. He has paid nothing. After my daughter was enrolled in the school it was left to me to find the money to pay.

Three years ago I commenced legal proceedings against him.

His son angrily told me that, two years ago, this man signed over the successful business to him and his brother (obviously to hide his assets/earnings etc).

My question are:

1) Why are the courts taking so long to settle this matter when they have all of the information required (to date three years)and this man is quite well known?

2) If court proceedings were started three years ago, but he only transferred the business to his sons two years ago, will the courts still consider the business in its calculations and understand he has transferred the business to avoid paying?

3) Can my daughter make a claim to a third of the business or else ask for monetary compensation for her third?

4) Can the court impose sanctions on this man, restricting his passport for example, for hiding assets and non payment etc?

Any help would be so much appreciated.
Thank you and kind regards.

Dear Ms. Duvall, Esq:

I am an American national living in New York. My daughter Olga was
born in the US when my husband had already become a US citizen, though he was born in St. Petersburg. An American child born in America to two Americans. He divorced me in 2014 and we share custody of child. I recently found out that he somehow got her a Russian passport!!! I do not know how. He has told me laughingly that he will take our baby away and nothing will stop him.

He is planning to leave me without a child, and her with no Mama to care for her. I have a lawyer here (Natalia Gourari) but there is not a lot to be done without proof. I need the documents related to her Russian passport, especially if her US birth certificate needed to be filed in some way with Russia to get that approval? So I can probe that he did what he confesses when we are alone.... I also need a copy of her passport and passport number. I have been calling Russian Consulates for 5 days. No answer! I also have learned that he bought apartment in St. Petersburg, and I need to learn where that is so I can show our Court that I am not lying about this crazy plan. I can give you names, birthdays, social security numbers, a Russian passport of my husband, bank account information, etc. Please let me know what guidance or assistance you might provide or direct, and God bless you.
