90 Day Fiancé Stars Loren & Alexei Move To Israel ‘Not Advisable’
Another spanner is in the works for Loren and Alexei Brovarnik’s planned move to Israel due to custody issues.
90 Day Fiancé stars Alexei and Loren Brovarnik have already faced criticism from her parents over a planned move to Israel. Now, a legal expert has said that the move “would not be advisable” due to custody reasons. Read on to find out what the immigration attorney had to say about the ill-advised move.
90 Day Fiancé stars Alexei and Loren warned over planned move
Fans will recall the blowout fight between Loren and her mother over their planned move to Israel. Now, a legal expert has told In Touch that the move “would not be advisable” due to custody reasons. However, admittedly, the controversy relates to divorce in Israel, which hopefully Loren and Alexei won’t plan to do any time soon.
Kathleen Martinez, an immigration attorney repped by Dominique Enchinton of Dominton Talent House said:
Israel has some difficult custody laws. If Loren and Alexi would happen to get divorced there, Loren is using their laws and system so they will use Israel’s custody laws.
Divorcing there and going through custody proceedings would not be advisable if she were my client.
Alexei and Loren’s relocation plans
During season 2 of Loren & Alexei: After the 90 Days, 90 Day Fiancé stars Loren, 34, and Alexei, 34, discussed plans to move from Florida to Israel. Naturally, the move would include their children, Shai, 2, Asher, 1, and Ariel, 4 months. Loren’s family is dead against the idea of the move, but it turns out they might be right to worry.
Speaking to In Touch, Kathleen explained that Israeli laws are very intricate. In fact, custody of the children would depend on the situation. She said:
Israel employs the Tender Age Doctrine, which is a presumption that for children under 6 years old it’s in their best interest to be placed with the mother.
However, she did add that it is possible to appeal this.
Moreover, in a January 2023 episode of the TLC reality show, Loren’s father, Bryan Goldstone also shared concern over custody should Loren and Alexei split. At the time, Goldstone said:
I said a lot today and you’re not gonna like it. Any of it. I told Alex that you need to speak to a, it’s not a divorce attorney. A custody attorney. I think you should know the custody laws in Israel. Israel is a very modern country.
Meanwhile, he added that Israel is also a “Middle Eastern country with archaic laws and things, and who would have the right to those children?”
Bryan further said, “You have to find out, would you even be allowed to take the children back out of the country,” adding that it is a real possibility in the Mideast.
After the conversation, Alexei admitted he was offended by his father-in-law’s comments. He said in a confessional, “I’m really pissed he went that way,” adding:
I did not think that after seven years I still have, you know, so little trust, and he has so little trust in me. I think at some point he will come to realize that if we decide things we’re gonna go through with them and if he’s against it, he’s gonna lose us forever.
Meanwhile, in the January 16 episode, the couple continued arguing with Bryan and Loren’s mom, Marlene. Where Loren insists the move is the best for them as a couple, Marlene slammed her, claiming that her daughter “always gives up” on herself. This led to the all-out mother-and-daughter battle that fans remember well.
Fans can catch the next episode of Loren & Alexei: After the 90 Days on Monday, January 23, 2023.
