My wife and I lived together only on the island in the Azores which is part of Portugal from Mid-October, 2001 until the first week of January 2, 2002 (about 2 months). I moved back to Azores in October last year to live with her. While in Lisbon to get papers for her Residency Visa our bags were stolen with all her documents. \nMy wife returned to Russia early January to get a new Passport and she insisted on not coming back to live on the Azores where I was planning to live. I am a Citizen of Portugal with a Green card to USA. \nI am back in USA because my wife did not want to live with me where I was planning on raising a family. \nShe thought she was coming directly to the USA and I did not want to have children in USA but in Azores where my family is. \nI am not worried about my situation in USA which is why I did not mention it before for these reasons: \n 1- she never lived or visited me in USA\n2- our only time together was in Astrakhan and Moscow 1 week and on Azores 2 months\n3- I put her name on my bank account in Pico which is why I was concerned about the shared account. \nFrom my wife's last email to me which I forwarded to you it is her idea to get a divorce since she does not wish to live on the island and was not happy with the $300.00 US per month I was sending to her in Russia. \nI have not heard anything from her sense that email. \nShe has lied to me frequently and I do not trust her. \nI have since stopped sending her any money and I will want a divorce as soon as possible. \nSince this is her idea, there should not be a contesting from her side. \nI have all her emails saved and can send if needed. \nMy Wife was supposed to ask for a new marriage certificate in February in Astrakhan and I sent her money for this. I do not know if she acquired it or not. I will make a JPG image of the marriage certificate for you. wait your next reply and I would like to get this process started as soon as possible
I have understood your situation. Please send me the copy of your Marriage Certificate. Also please send me your data in order to fill out the Power of Attorney. For this I am needed the following: your full name, the address of your residence, full name of your wife and her address of residence (but these you have sent me already). \nAfter that I will send you a template of Power of Attorney that you should sign, notarized and have Apostille. Do you know how to get the Apostille? (If you are in the USA, it is done at office of Secretary of State). I can send you an example of the Apostille. \nThen please send me the fee. Please choose what is more convenient to you.
