The question is as follows. What kind of responsibility is provided for a person who hasn’t registered her divorce in a Civil Records Office of the Russian Federation? A bill of divorce was issued at her request (in 1998 Taganrog City Court dissolved the marriage concluded between Russian citizens in 1992 in Kaliningrad). She registered the second marriage with a US citizen. Did she have a right to register the new marriage without registering the divorce? By what laws is this procedure regulated? This person concluded the second marriage with the intent to get material benefit and didn’t mention her previous marriage.
I think there is no responsibility for such actions. In accordance with the existing Family Code of the Russian Federation a marriage is considered dissolved from the effective date of a bill of divorce. Therefore receipt of a divorce certificate in a Civil Records Office is a formality which doesn’t change the civil status of the parties.
