A husband and a wife have been married for 10 years. They had a quarrel and the wife applied for divorce but didn't say anything to the husband. They made up the quarrel while the case was under examination. She appeared before the court without the husband. The case was examined without her. and from the first time the people were divorced (the judge told them to receive the papers in 10 days). Are judge's actions lawful?
During these 10 days you shall familiarize yourself with judge's decision. In case the judge delivered a judgment to terminate the marriage (Art. 21-23 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation) you can appeal the decision. In case the judge delivered a judgment to terminate the proceedings due to conciliation of the parties, you shall wait for entry of the decision into legal force upon expiration of the mentioned 10 days. In any case the judge can not return the application accepted by the court to you and must deliver a judgment. The case files that you will receive will show what kind of judgment the judge has delivered.
