International Divorce Solicitors in London

There are many reasons why couples choose an international marriage, whether that be due to the marriage taking place overseas but the couple take residence in the UK, or partners living overseas but being domiciled or married in the UK. However, if the marriage encounters difficulties and the parties decide it is time to dissolve the union, then there is an extra level of complication involved when deciding which jurisdiction to get divorced in.

As leading international divorce solicitors, Goodwins Family Law offer advice regarding divorce law for cases throughout the world. This includes Europe, the Middle East, North America, Asia and Australasia.

We 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
In these situations, one of the most significant factors in determining where the divorce proceedings are held is who issues the divorce petition first and in which country. It is therefore 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.

We are fully accredited and regulated, 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 Skype 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.
