Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)

Hello, My Russian girlfriend of 2 years now, states that her "husband wont give her a divorce". There fore I am unable to marry her to secure the Russian visa to stay in Russia with her and begin our family. After many visits (no money has ever been involved and things are good with us) I truly wonder if under Russian law the Russian husband can keep her from getting her divorce. In USA one person moves out and seeks divorce. Thanks - call me confused Robert back in USA until May 2003.


In Russia any of the spouse also has a right to demand the divorce. The divorce case is scheduled at Russian court in one month from the date of applying. If any party would contest divorce, the court has a right to allow them a time for conciliation for three month. There are also other ways to delay the case. But usually a divorce case with preparing of all the necessary documents takes from 2 to 6 month in this country. If you would be interested, I can help you in this case.

Articles and consultations authored by attorney reflect the state of law as of the date of their writing. The laws change daily. Users of this site are advised to consult attorney regarding their situation.
