International Divorce & Family Law

Using our international experience to ensure you can navigate complex cross border family law issues.

Dealing with family issues or disputes when you or members of your family live or work in a different country, or are planning to relocate, can raise complex legal issues.

Those issues can be an additional complexity in a divorce or separation, or where there is a change in circumstance that may have implications for an existing arrangement relating to children.

We provide specialist advice relating to children and how a relocation impacts visiting or care arrangements, and how best to present or defend a relocation proposal by the other parent.

Our team also provide private family law advice to expatriates - living or working abroad temporarily, who have retained their UK citizenship or international clients with a connection to England and Wales in relation to asset protection and advising on the implications of relationship agreements, as well as divorce

We advise as to whether the English courts are an appropriate place to enforce or implement foreign orders or whether an alternative legal jurisdiction would better serve your requirements.

International cases require experienced lawyers, critical timing, careful and thorough planning and bespoke advice to give the best chance of success.

Whatever your circumstances, our family team are experienced in dealing with complex international cases that may cut across several different countries or legal jurisdictions.

We regularly deal with financial scenarios incorporating different international trust and asset structures and where multiple properties are owned in different countries. As a member of the ADVOC network - an international network of independent lawyers, we can source trusted legal support in over 70 countries worldwide.

We also have access to our specialist immigration team, who can provide advice about the implications of any relocation on visa issues.
