What’s the difference between divorcing in England and Russia?

The courts in Russia can only make very limited provision for spouses on divorce. Generally, this will be dividing jointly owned property equally, with no investigation of assets held in sole names. Maintenance can only be ordered in very specific circumstances, for example where the spouse is disabled, pregnant or has care of a disabled child.

It is highly likely that the English court will make far more generous provision for a financially weaker party than Russia will.

Какие преимущества развода в Англии и Уэльсе?

Суды стран СНГ и соседних государств строго ограничены рамками закона при разрешении семейных споров. Как правило, совместно нажитое имущество распределяется поровну, а личные активы остаются за пределами пристального внимания суда. Финансово незащищенная сторона спора имеет право на содержание лишь в исключительных обстоятельствах, например, когда она нетрудоспособна, беременна или ухаживает за ребёнком с ограниченными возможностями.

В то же время, английский суд присуждает гораздо более щедрые компенсации тому, кто занимался домашним очагом и воспитанием детей. Суд исходит из того, что это не менее важные аспекты семейной жизни, чем обеспечение достатка, и материальные блага при разводе нужно распределять соответственно.
