Dispute about court jurisdiction during dissolution of marriage.


Mr. Alen Block, citizen of Netherlands, permanently lives in USA based on issued residence permit. In 1999 he registered marriage on Cyprus with a citizen of the Russian Federation Natalia Zhuk. Due to complexity of migration legislation in Europe and USA, the spouses could not live together. They could only meet each other several times in different cities and countries, after which their marriage was broken. Alen Block submitted a claim to the court on dissolution of marriage with his spouse, citizen of Russia, who, in her turn, was against dissolution of marriage. She argued that rules of jurisdiction were breached and insisted on dissolution of marriage in USA. The court did not agree with arguments of the respondent. The marriage was dissolved pursuant to the law of the Russian Federation.
