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

I am Russian I lived in Kuwait for 1 year and concluded a marriage with a Lebanese. I have a marriage certificate in Arabic. At the present time I am in Russia and I do not know where my husband is. What shall I do to terminate the marriage?

Does this marriage impede conclusion of a Russian and an international marriage (apart from Arabic countries)? The marriage certificate was not translated into Russian and was not registered in Russia.


According to Art. 160 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation termination of marriages between Russian and foreign citizens shall be performed in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation. You shall file a divorce claim to a court. I wouldn’t recommend you to conclude a new marriage prior to termination of this one as it may be held invalid (Art. 14, 27 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation).

Articles and consultations authored by attorney reflect the state of law as of the date of their writing. The laws change daily. Users of this site are advised to consult attorney regarding their situation.
