Many families have international aspects – you and your spouse may have different nationalities, be living or working abroad, or you may have assets overseas. There can be complex jurisdictional and cross-border questions so if a relationship breaks down, it is important to move quickly.
If a family has connections with more than one a jurisdiction, you may have a choice as to the law that should govern a prenuptial agreement or where to start divorce proceedings. It is essential to appreciate all of the considerations of getting divorced in competing jurisdictions as the impact can be significant. We can give early advice and have connections with family lawyers around the globe to advise our clients.
Where there are children, one parent may want to relocate from England to another country with the children, for example, if they want to return to their home country. These cases need to be addressed sensitively and carefully.
