Expert international divorce advice

Every country has a different legal system and different divorce laws, and our divorce solicitors can guide you as to whether, in your situation, you can use these to your advantage. Sometimes, it’s better for one or both partners if the divorce takes place abroad. However, selecting a jurisdiction for your divorce (also known as ‘forum shopping’) can affect the outcome of your divorce settlement and how long it takes to get divorced.

What is international divorce?

If you are getting divorced in England, you might need the help of an international divorce law expert if:

  • you got married in another country (anywhere other than England)
  • you or your partner were born in another country
  • you or your partner live abroad, or have lived abroad in the past
  • you have international assets or property abroad
  • you or your partner are planning to move abroad. 

How our international divorce lawyers can help 

Our experts can advise you on a range of issues, including:

  • if your partner is pushing for the divorce to take place abroad
  • enforcing foreign maintenance orders
  • enforcing foreign financial orders
  • moving abroad with your children after divorce
  • stopping your former partner moving abroad with your children. 

International divorce lawyers often handle complex family and financial issues. Our team have the experience and understanding of international law to help you get the best result possible.
