How long does it take to get a court date from submission of dossier?

Hi - We are submitting our court dossier to the Russian court next Monday, August 1st.  How long does it usually take to get a court date once the dossier is submitted?


I don’t know - but it probably is different in every region.  We almost have our court dossier ready, another couple of weeks and we will also be submitting.  I hope soon, though, because some of the papers are only good for 90 days.

how long did it take?  Ours has been submitted and now I am wondering the same thing.

It has been almost 5 months since our first trip to visit our “daughter to be”... and we are still waiting for a court date… The paperwork took about 3 1/2 months and then we had to redo some which took another 2-3 weeks.  Paperwork expires after 90 days (Russia rules) so we keep going in circles - redoing paperwork!... I think we are getting close to a date..
