Family law : divorce and division of property. (Russia)

My wife sold a property in England, and then we used this money to purchase a property in USA in joint names. Does Russian law insist any money invested into the marriage be returned? A mortgage was also used to finance this property based on my earnings.

We purchased a second property in the US in joint names. I am assuming this property will be divided equally?

I assume this money is divided equally?


Russian court is not allowed to perform the division of the property that is out of Russia Federation borders. If you have got the agreement with your wife then the best will be to make a contract of the property division in the USA territory, where the property is situated. If can’t get an agreement with your wife, in this case the division of the property, which is situated in the USA, only the American court has a right to do this.

If the property is situated in New York, I can direct you to my colleague in New York who can reach understandings with your wife and can represent your interests in the court.

Articles and consultations authored by attorney reflect the state of law as of the date of their writing. The laws change daily. Users of this site are advised to consult attorney regarding their situation.
