International divorce and end-of-relationship planning:
If you are contemplating ending your relationship, and you live an international lifestyle, you need to understand your legal landscape. We can advise you on whether you are entitled to divorce in this jurisdiction, and whether this is in your best interests. We will help you seek legal advice in other jurisdictions to ensure that you use the most appropriate legal system.
Our clients frequently hold overseas assets which are dealt with as part of a financial settlement on divorce. We have the expertise to advise you how our courts deal with these assets, and will direct you to our international legal partners to seek advice in different jurisdictions. We will work together with lawyers across the world to produce the best outcomes for our clients.
You may have issues relating to difficulties agreeing where your children should live after separation. This can be made more complex if you are living in different countries, or if your children are now living in a different country to you. You may need to act urgently, if you learn that your former partner is planning to remove your children to another country. We can assist you in taking the right action, at the right time.
Before the event planning
If you live or are planning to live an international lifestyle with your spouse or family, consider the benefits of planning in advance.
Are you intending to have children in a foreign country? This may result in limitations being placed upon you and your children about the country in which you can live in the event of separation.
You may wish to consider entering a pre-marital agreement. We can advise you on this rapidly changing area of law.
We understand that you need us to be available at times of the day which suit your diary, and we are available on Skype to meet with you if you are unable to travel to the UK. If you want to reach us on telephone, our number is +44 (0)1908 904064.
