Thank you for your helpful email. \nMy partner is a Russian citizen. She has given her mothers home as permanent resident. She is trying to divorce under Swiss law but her husband refuses and it can take 5 years. She is temporarily with me in the UK. Her husband has not issued any divorce proceedings. \nShe has also just filed papers in Russia. The marriage took place to her Swiss husband in Switzerland and she has filed papers with the apostille stamp to the Russian Court in Kineshma. She has filed with apostille stamp her Swiss marriage certificate. She has no children with this man. \nThe city of residence is Kineshma near Ivanovo. \nAfter she has filed the papers what happens next? \nWe have a lawyer in Swiss in the town where her husband lives and he is able to contact her husband. \nIt sounds like there is this three month period- what if he refuses to co-operate, for example if he is sent papers and refuses to sign them or he goes traveling overseas for a few months? \nIf he refuses to cooperate how long after this period will the divorce be issued? \nYour help is much appreciated.
As far as I understand correctly, your partner did filed a suit about divorce to court. Right? If so, could you send me copies of all the documents filed to the court. Who did prepare the documents for court? What method was state duty paid? If all the documents were prepared by a lawyer, why have you addressed to me? If it's needed I can plead your case. But unfortunately if I don't see documents and if I haven't worked closely with your case, it's difficult to me to provide you with comprehensive advice and help.
