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

My wife and I were married in France. She is a Russian citizen, residing in Russia. I am a US citizen residing in the US. We have been separated, without any formal court proceedings, for over 1 year. We would now wish to be divorced. Neither of us wishes their expense to travel to appear in court in another country. There are no children and all property, etc. is already divided. My state in the USA has a long waiting period, especially if both parties do not appear. Can my wife arrange the divorce in Russia, without my appearing? And, if yes, how long would such a divorce take to get? Thank you,


In your situation it's better that you initiate the divorce rather than your wife because if she initiate the divorce, it would take more time. Moreover, she will not be able to get divorce documents for you. I can conduct your divorce. Your should deliver me your Marriage Certificate, copies of passports of parties and Power of Attorney to conduct your case; I will prepare text of the Power of Attorney. I also ask you to let me know place of residence of your wife in Russia.
