Family Law: termination of parental rights, rights of the child, child support. (Ukraine)
My bride living in Ukraine divorced more than two years ago. She has an eight-year old daughter
living with her in Ukraine. I want us all to live in France where I live, after we get married. But she consulted two lawyers in Ukraine, and they both told her that without her ex-husband`s consent she would not be able to take her child from Ukraine. Meanwhile, it has no difference if we are married or not.
Please, explain to me how the Ukrainian law handles this situation. Does she really have to wait 10 years until her daughter is 18 to be able to build her further life? She sees it impossible to immigrate without her daughter.
Can she and her daughter go for a short holiday to France? Or is the child`s father`s consent is necessary in this case as well?
Please, tell me about it in detail. Could you possibly help?
