I hope my friends don’t go through a divorce but if they are unfortunate to do so I will recommend you and your firm.

—– Mrs J, Middlesex

I will definitely be recommending you to others. Once again many, many thanks.

International Divorce

In regards to international divorce, early advice and professional guidance is highly recommended when the jurisdiction of the case can be challenged. This is particularly important in European cases, as the parties can literally ‘race’ to issue proceedings in different countries. In cases where the proceedings may exist in different countries, whichever court gets the instructions first gets to keep the case. This can have dramatic consequences for any financial settlements and the overall outcome of the case.

We can also help with other areas relating to divorce and family law, coupled with international elements. For example, we have extensive experience in dealing with financial matters such as protecting current assets and discovering assets hidden by spouses – whether they are in the UK or abroad. We also regularly work with legal experts and governments overseas in international child abduction cases.

Family Law Experts are known for our trustworthiness, breadth of knowledge, and speedy resolution of cases.

If you require advice on international family law matters, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us, as time may be of essence.
