Family Law: adoption, guardianship (Russia)
When I bought three-room flat, the buy-sell agreement and all registrations for that apartment mention my name as Sydoroff. This was done because the notarized translation of my passport was done with Sydoroff. I did not know at that time but later my wife told me that my name should be spelled as Sidorov.
What problems can I run into in regards to a future sale of any of these properties, execution of my will, my residency permit or in connection to the marriage certificate? Do I need to have corrections made and what would be the simplest way of doing that?

Family Law: adoption, guardianship (Russia)
My wife, Sarah, and I (both citizens of United States) recently moved to Moscow. Sarah is pregnant and plans to have the child here in Moscow. We would like to obtain Russian citizenship for the child, if possible. (We will also be obtaining US citizenship for her). Would you be available to consult with me regarding this matter? If so, when might be a convenient time schedule a call?

Family Law: adoption, guardianship (Russia)
I am English and my wife of 2 years is Russian. We have a 14 year old daughter who also is Russian. I am not her father just stepfather. I would like to adopt her. She has not seen her father for 13 years although my wife met with him and got his permission to bring her daughter out of Russia. I have been informed that we need to get the court in Russia to agree to the adoption. What is involved? How long would it take? If we cannot find the father again is it still possible? Does my wife, her daughter or myself need to be in Russia for this?
