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

When dealing with the divorce, does the Russian Court hearing the divorce automatically deal with other related issues such as division of matrimonial assets, maintenance (alimony) for the ex-wife, maintenance for the child, custody of the child, care and control of the child (which parent the child resides with) and access to the child (the nonresidential parent’s visitation rights to the child)? Or does either party have to file a different application for these reliefs, separate from the divorce itself?


Spouses have rights to solve their matrimonial problems at any time with or without divorce procedure. As part of a divorce, one of the spouses can raise any matrimonial issues, such child support issues, spousal support, division of property, or custody/visitation issues. The judge has the right to consider all these issues together or separately.
