I would be so happy to get some help regarding divorce. I don’t know if this will be your expertise, but I hope so? I would like to recommend them to someone who can help them.
I have some questions about divorce in the US of a marriage between two Russian Citizens who both have permanent residency/green cards in the US
They’ve been married for about 10+ years. Married in Russia.
Lived in the United States for about 7 years. Have a 3 1/2 year old child.
They both intend to live in the US, potentially for life. The woman will likely become a US citizen in about 2 years. The man may just continue with the permanent residency. They have been paying taxes in the US for the entire time they have lived here.
Can they divorce here? Must they divorce in Russia? Must they file paperwork in both places?
The spouses has to divorce in one place only: they have choice of jurisdiction, and can file divorce in Russia if they want quick divorce. Divorce in the United States always involves all matrimonial issues like child custody, child support, spousal support (if applicable), equitable distribution of marital property, and etc. Divorce procedure in the United States will cost you much more than divorce in Russia. If you would like me to handle your divorce in Russia, I will be glad to work with you.
