Family Law: divorce proceedings, conclusion of marriage (Russia)

Well it's not for happy reasons I email you. I moved to Russia to be with my pregnant wife at the time. She had the baby almost 10 months ago and I've stayed in Russia to be with them. I don't trust leaving my daughter alone in Russia with my wife. Now I am in a position where I can not afford to stay. My wife although making hundreds of thousands of dollars per year will not help me financially with anything. I am now losing credit score very fast due to my inability to pay bills without her help because I was not able to work in Russia. She threatens that if I file for divorce she will take our daughter but it can not be real because she is not a mother. She does not spend any time taking care of our daughter. Stopped breastfeeding after the 2nd week, punched her belly when our daughter was in the womb, will not help me with her ever. Gave our daughter her first bath after 7 months. Until then I would bathe her or my wife's mother would bathe her. My wife used to beat me physically, kick me out of her apartment when I had no place to go in Russia, and no money to get a hotel, I would walk around Moscow until she would allow me to return. I need help understanding Russian law, she says that she does not have to help me with anything and the court will automatically grant her custody of our daughter because she simply is the biological mother. I optimistically pray this is not the case because if it is, I seriously fear for my daughter and her life. I have no where to turn for help in this scenario at this time. I plead with you to give me some chance to explain everything to you in person. I am an American living here, and I've just gotten my residence in Russia. I live in Moscow.


I will be glad to arrange divorce for you.
