Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)
I was asked to perform a divorce certificate in order to exchange my passport to anew one. Is such requirement lawful? As I submitted an extract from a divorce decree that came into effect.
I suppose that such requirement is lawful. Notwithstanding that the marriage is considered terminated from the date of divorce decree enforcement (Art. 25 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation) the divorce certificate is a final document certifying termination of the marriage. In order to obtain the divorce certificate you should submit an extract from the divorce decree, passport and pay a state duty to a Civil Records Office at the place of residence.
