Question

I have filed for a divorce against my husband in Russia. We have two children who reside with me and my husband is refusing to pay for them hiding behind his low income in Russia. I know that he owns a business in the United Stated and even supports a mistress in New York. How can I obtain more information about my husband's business in New York and his bank accounts there? The Russian court cannot reach those assets and does not have jurisdiction over them.

Answer

Actually, New York has a procedure whereby upon request of the foreign court discovery can be conducted in New York. The lawyer in New York would have to ask the Court in New York to open discovery in order to assist a Russian court in making decisions about child support and alimony. This tool is rarely used because it is rarely invoked by lawyers.
