Divorce and division of property
According to Russian Family and Civil law, all property acquired during marriage is joint property of spouses independently of whose name in on the title and who uses it. In general rule, each spouse has 1/2 part of the property acquired during registered marriage. Marriage agreement can change this lawful order of spousal property and determine who will have which property in case of divorce. Real estate disputes belong to exclusive jurisdiction and will be considered at the place of location of real estate no matter where the parties live. Even if both souse are foreigners and never lived in Russia but have real estate in Russia, only Russian court has jurisdiction to consider dispute for such property.
