International family law
London, often labelled as the divorce capital of the world, is more cosmopolitan than ever and as a firm we enjoy an increasingly international client base.
We are accustomed to guiding clients who are contemplating separation and divorce as to the most advantageous choice of jurisdiction for them to commence proceedings.
We have built a close network of international matrimonial lawyers in overseas jurisdictions with whom we work closely, on a regular basis, in facilitating our clients’ divorces when jurisdictions other than those of England and Wales, prove more beneficial to them. This is often referred to as forum shopping and is of particular significance to couples who are of differing nationalities and who reside in more than one country.
We are adept at ensuring that our clients are comprehensively advised at an early stage as to the full breadth of possibilities and the best available jurisdiction to initiate proceedings, since this will be instrumental not only in the size of divorce settlements, but also in the assets available for division and the rules surrounding maintenance payments.
