Supporting the Russian-speaking community in Cyprus

In December 2017 Elias Neocleous & Co LLC and the Russian Centre for Science and Culture signed a memorandum of cooperation to support Russian-speaking people living in Cyprus and promote bilateral cultural, humanitarian and scientific cooperation between Russia and Cyprus, including organising a series of seminars provide information about the legal and business environment in Cyprus.
The first seminar took place at the Russian Centre for Science and Culture on 23 May. It focused on family law in Cyprus, including divorce procedures, child custody, the procedure for considering the application for payment of alimony and property issues after divorce. Specialists from our firm with extensive experience in family law described the provisions of the law and how they are applied in practice, and answered participants’ questions.
Seminars will take place every three weeks, and topics for the future include migration and employment law. The seminars focus on legal practice, not theory, and aim to inform Russian-speaking residents of Cyprus about issues that they may face in their daily lives.
