When does international family law apply?

International Family Law applies when in a relationship, either one or both parties have connections to another country outside of England and Wales.

International divorce can either involve one or more foreign nationals living in England and Wales (either pre or post-separation) or where expats are living abroad. If either party hold matrimonial assets overseas, which may include pensions, property, businesses, or other investments, it is important to seek specialist advice.

Jurisdictional elements

International family law may include one or multiple jurisdictional elements outside of England and Wales, with laws varying from country to country. Seeking representation early can be beneficial in determining the process and procedure of your case allowing you to be presented with all the options.
