Establishment of fact having legal effect in divorce proceedings.
Mr. Edward Kornevoy, citizen of the Russian Federation, filed a claim to the magistrate court on dissolution of marriage with his spouse, Madlena Korn, citizen of USA. The Court fixed a timeframe for the claimant to submit original marriage certificate with Apostille and notarized translation into Russian as case files. Our specialist restored the marriage certificate with observation of further procedure of legalization. However, when the document was submitted to the court it was established that while the claim was filed by Edward Kornevoy, certain Eric Korn registered the marriage. The judge suspended the proceedings due to necessity to establish a judicial fact that Edward Kornevoy, who changed his name during registration of marriage and reduced his surname to four letters, and Eric Korn are the same person. Presently, the Federal Court is considering a civil case on establishment of this legal fact, in view of which their marriage can not be presently dissolved.
