If my wife now does not want a divorce, is it still possible for me to file for it unilaterally? If so, what documents would I need? And would she be able to challenge the divorce request? Or stop the process? Again, we have no joint property and no kids.

I appreciate you taking the time to help me with all this! I know the situation is a little challenging, but my wife (who I haven't seen now in over two years) is a little unstable and changes her mind frequently on things.


According to the Russian legislation, you have the right to demand divorce unilaterally. When we start working, I will prepare package of needed documents for you.

Don't worry. You can get a divorce even in case of disagreement of your wife.

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.
