Please correct me if I misunderstand, but I do not believe I have jurisdictional standing > to pursue a divorce in a Russian court, therefore only my wife (Russian citizen resident in Russia) could engage you as plaintiff in the case and no power of attorney would be necessary on my behalf. Also, my understanding of the RF "Semmnoye Kodeks" is that a mutually agreed case as this must conclude within 30 days (very efficient compared to American court processes). Is that correct? If all is correct, I will pass your information on to her and she and I will discuss the fees and possibility of using your services.
I can help you because Family Law is my main speciality :) \n YOU CAN GET DIVORCE in Saint-Petersburg filing to court at the place of residence of your wife. Is she keeping residence in Saint Petersburg? In order to start such work, it is required you get and send me a notary power of attorney with the apostille that allows me to do work in Russia on your behalf. Your presence in court is not required - your power of attorney authorizing to conduct your case would be enough along with your applications to consider your case without your presence. When we start working, I will prepare package of needed documents for you. \n The court has the right to pass the judgement on divorce not earlier than in 1 month. But usually a divorce case with preparing of all the necessary documents takes from 2 to 6 month.
