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

Hi, I am Icelander living in Norway. I am married to woman from Kharkov. Now we have a problems because mistake and misunderstandings, we have never lived together. After she was home again everything was going wrong for us and now she want divorce.

I think I must go to Ukraine and try to talk with my "still wife" eyes to eyes, but we have not talk together over one year, only few words with email. She told me she want divorce because she felt I did not want her. Something in my words or behaviour was misunderstand by her. It.s lot of things who is different between the west people and the east and can be misinterpreted and badly misleading and can make wrong conclusions and then conflicts. That has happen in our case but I am helpless, I only want she can be happy and I hope so. She did not answer my phone-calls. We have not lived together, only few weeks under same roof, so this seems to be simply. Most simply in such case is invalidate the marriage due to adultery, she told me in email, she want start new life with man in her homeland.

I am ready to pay you for help in this case, if you want further details so you can evaluate based on feminine intuition eastern European woman what best to do, or go direct to annul the marriage if it is really her wish is in your hands if the price is acceptable.

with great thanks,


I looked at your letters from 2010 to see how your problem developed in time. Because the problems with you wife started not yesterday, I think there are no chances to reconcile in your case and spending time for travels to Ukraine and talks one-to-one would be too optimistic. It is obvious that if you did not communicate for more than one year, both of you have own life now and keeping such marriage in my view would be very problematic.

I think that annulment way does not have a perspective. Infidelity is not a reason for annulment. Annulments are very difficult cases, very expensive and less promising. For you the best way is divorce. If from your wife there is no objection for divorce, the court will make such decision relatively quickly and each of you will proceed with own life. I also do not exclude that since one year as you do not communicate with your wife she might already divorce you.

I can help you in divorce in Ukraine. Please send me copy of Marriage certificate (if you have one). If you don’t have Marriage certificate, please let me know the exact place and date of your marriage registration. Please send me copy of your passport, copy of passport of your wife, and give me addresses of the parties. From you it will be needed the Power of Attorney to conduct the case in court; everything else we will de ourselves.

I would be glad to help you.
