International Divorce

It is vital to obtain early advice when contemplating a divorce or separation, particularly when there is an international element to the decision.

Whether divorcing parties marry or live outside of England and Wales, or they have property or investments overseas, if their circumstances meet the jurisdiction criteria required by the courts of England and Wales, they can be divorced here. That means that the courts of England and Wales can also have the power to make wide ranging decisions about assets, properties and pensions, even if they are based overseas. Our lawyers advise UK nationals who are living or working abroad and we are regularly instructed by foreign nationals who live and work in England and Wales or who have ties to England and Wales.

We advise clients from all over the world about their legal position, whether they are just starting to consider their situation or if they are in the middle of proceedings. We advise on a whole range of matrimonial issues, including jurisdiction disputes, prenuptial agreements, and financial settlements.

Our family finance team have a wealth of knowledge in this area of family law, and we welcome enquiries from individuals who may have an international element to their forthcoming divorce.
