My marriage was broken in accordance with court decision in Russia. I have all documents from court in Russia but I live in the USA. How can I get my Divorce Certificate?
In accordance with Item 5, Article "f" of Vienna Convention about Consular Relations from April 24, 1963 (began action since March 19, 1967), consulates can register civil status.
