Schmock of a brother in law, russian wife, divorce
To cut a long story short my brother in law met a russian lady on the internet 7 years ago she came over they married within 6 months, after 1.5 years her mother died so she went back to russia where she has stayed ! been 3 years since she has been in the UK, they hardly speak and only communicate via email a few times a week.
To be fair he’s a plonka we hardly have anything to do with him he has no time for his sister(my wife) or our children.
If they got a divorce is she entitled to anything ? he owns his house she contributed zero £££ to it as she never worked here, they dont have children.
He also doesnt have a will…
How do I know all this… I spent the afternoon with him and his mother (my MIL is worried sick about him) so I asked questions.
Many thanks in advance…Posted 3 years agochewkwMember
I don’t think she will be able to come back without a visa as her status as spouse needs to go beyond, I think, more than two years until she get permanent residency.
If he gets a divorce she definitely has no way to settle here or to claim anything over here.
But check with immigration lawyer … 😮Posted 3 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
Sorry to hear this, but as I understand she is a regular spouse and gets tbe same deal as a British born spouse.
Mate had a Russian wife. The day she qualified for British citizenship he came home from work to a house that was completely empty save for two coppers wanting to talk to him about domestic abuse allegations.
We weren’t surprised, sadly, he was.Posted 3 years agopoahMember
he should get a will done as without one it all goes to his wife
re house – if he had it before and she has not contributed I’m pretty sure there is precident for that she would only be entitled to what she had put in since they got married. so if she put in 30% of the mortgage then she would be entitled to 30% of the profit from the day she started to pay. I could be wrong though lolPosted 3 years ago
