Specialist advice for international divorce cases involving couples with ties to England and Wales

Operating from our office in London, we cover divorce, separation and child custody proceedings across various regions.

International Divorce Solicitors in London

As leading international divorce solicitors, Goodwins Family Law Solicitors offer legal advice and representation for divorce law cases throughout the world. This includes:

Our team of experts can advise on:

  • Divorce if you married abroad but currently live in England and Wales
  • Divorce if one or both spouses were born or have lived overseas
  • Divorce if you married in England and Wales but live overseas
  • International child custody and maintenance
  • Joint assets overseas
  • Financial settlements

Inside the EU, the most significant factor in determining where divorce proceedings are held is who issues the divorce petition first and in which country. Outside the EU, divorce proceedings usually take place in the country with the closest connection to the couple. It is essential to seek advice from an international divorce solicitor at the earliest opportunity.

At Goodwins, we will discuss your situation with you, working quickly to ensure the right jurisdiction to secure a more preferable outcome.

Our team of international family law specialists have an excellent success rate in international cases with varying levels of complication. Our expertise also extends to representing high net worth individuals and those who require the services of a forensic accountant.

We are fully accredited and regulated, have a high client satisfaction rate and offer a highly competitive fee structure.

During the initial fixed fee consultation, we will provide specialist knowledge tailored to your situation and advise on how to proceed through the process going forward. This can take place at our base in Harrow, London, or via our worldwide video call service should you want to contact us from abroad.

If you would like to know more about our services, please feel free to contact us today.
