International divorce

At Hamblin Family Law, we recognise the multifaceted nature of international divorce cases. Our London-based divorce lawyers offer specialist support to guide you through this intricate landscape while helping source the international team of advisers you need, before leading the execution of the global case strategy.

What is involved in an international divorce?

International divorce involves navigating the complexities of differing legal systems, potential jurisdiction disputes, cultural considerations, child arrangements, and the division of assets on a global scale. Cases are also influenced by multiple factors, such as couples relocating from their home country to live abroad, living in different countries than their former partners, holding citizenship in another country, or dealing with the challenges posed by diverse nationalities and cultures.

Therefore, effective handling of international divorce cases not only requires particular expertise and experience in coordinating legal proceedings across borders but heightened sensitivity in considering the impact on financial portfolios and children within the family.

At Hamblin Family Law, we ensure you are fully informed and supported throughout the divorce process, navigating potential challenges and legal intricacies with empathy and a commitment to protecting your interests.

Where should the divorce take place?

An initial challenge of international divorce is determining which country should handle the court proceedings – otherwise known as jurisdiction. Indeed, for multinational relationships, this can involve multiple jurisdictions needing to be considered and becoming involved.

In all instances, you must have a connection to the country you want to divorce in and there are differing criteria to apply so we recommend that you act quickly and seek expert advice in each jurisdiction.
