I am divorced from a Lady from Russia since 08 August January 2007. The divorce was in mutual agreement and occurred in Moscow. I live in United States, now she also lives in America. She has just now applied for Divorce and a claim on my assets in New York.
During the Application for Divorce in Moscow I think I remember a question about claims on each others assets.
Does a question on claims on each others assets exist during the application process for divorce in Moscow. If so what is the name of this document? Is it possible to obtain without traveling to Russia?
I will be able to get case papers from court.
I have dozens of cases with foreign citizens and I know perfectly these problems.
Some of my clients had problems with their Russian ex-wives. I can assure you that you need to go to American court fully armed having all documents properly authenticated. And you shouldn't disclose your position untimely. And you should treat yourself to this issue with all seriousness.
For American court you need originals of documents and first of all the court documents. Probably you will have to ask court to postpone your case to provide evidences. It's needed to be completely prepared and then finish the trial with one stroke.
The evidences for the case are the following:
- application (if exists) from your wife contained in the case file;
- protocol of the court hearing;
- decision of court in Moscow;
- Divorce Certificate.
In order to get documents from Moscow court I need authorities from you. So, you should draw a Power of Attorney, the text of this document I can prepare and send you.
