Divorce & International Divorce

Divorce can be traumatic and very emotional and many people do not know where to start. They often think that they have to get divorced in the country in which they got married. This is not true. We advise our clients where to divorce as the divorce laws vary considerably from country to country. If we advise our clients to proceed with a divorce in England and Wales then that process usually takes between 3 – 6 months. The only ground for divorce is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage which can be based on adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion, 2 years separation with the other party’s consent and 5 years’ separation.

We are highly experienced in dealing with divorces containing a foreign element, for example where one party resides abroad, a party cannot be found or a party must be served internationally. Our clients reside in the UK, Europe, Asia, Central and South America, the Middle East, USA, Australia and New Zealand.  Typically our clients have some connection to London and/or England.  Read more about our divorce and international divorce services.

Children Issues

The English Courts can resolve issues that concern a child, for example where and with whom a child should live or how much contact your child should have with someone. The Courts can also deal with specific issues (schooling, religion) or prohibit someone to take certain steps. However, we also negotiate agreements if that is possible. We are experts at dealing with issues surrounding children. Call us now to discuss your situation. Read more about our child services and child maintenance services.

Financial Issues

Many couples need to resolve the finances between them following their separation. The starting point in a divorce is often to issue divorce proceedings. Parties can thereafter apply to the Court for a financial settlement. Upon issuing such an application the Court will impose a court timetable and both parties are required to take certain steps such as fully disclosing their financial assets. Once both parties are satisfied that both parties’ assets have been disclosed fully it is attempted to negotiate a settlement. If a settlement cannot be negotiated between the parties the Court will approve the settlement and make this settlement into a so called consent order. If negotiations fail the case will proceed to a final hearing and a Judge will make a decision which is binding. We are highly experienced having negotiated many financial settlements. Please contact us now to discuss your situation. Read more about our financial settlements services, our spousal maintenance services and our child maintenance services.
