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

I married my wife in Moscow and we moved to my home in England. I now want a divorce in the UK, but my wife has the original Russian marriage certificate and she refuses to let me have it. The courts in the UK require that I produce the original certificate. How do I obtain a "copy" of the marriage certificate which is a legal in the UK for divorce purposes.


Yes, without of the original of marriage certificate it's not possible to divorce either in Russia or in the UK. In this month I will be in Moscow and I can get a duplicate original of your marriage certificate. In order to use it not only in Russia, the document is required to have apostille in justice authority. Usually it takes about 10 days.

In order that I can get this document, prepare and send it to you, you should:

1) fill out a Power of Attorney according to template that I can send you;

2) tell me the exact information about the place of registration of your marriage and the date. It's better to email me an image copy of your marriage certificate.

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.
