Nowadays it is not uncommon for couples to get married abroad, live or work abroad or have property overseas. When these relationships break down, you need specialist advice from international family solicitors about how to proceed.
Unsurprisingly, the law on divorce is not consistent throughout the world. Depending on your circumstances you may be able to issue divorce proceedings in another country, or even several other countries (‘forum shopping’). We often advise clients about taking action in different countries and have in-depth knowledge about how family law works in other countries.
As international family solicitors we act for many international clients and have considerable experience in the issues that arise. We can help with disputes about where to file for divorce, making financial claims in multiple countries, property and other assets. Our experience in international cases ensures the process is as simple as possible and means we can fully support you in making difficult choices.
No matter which jurisdiction we are working with, our approach is the same in that we thrive to provide a practical and clear resolution in the most cost-effective manner. We will always seek to resolve an issue before it reaches the courts, but should it get that far, you can rely on our experience and knowledge to guide you through the process.
