    What’s the difference between divorcing in England and in 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.
