Our team of experienced family lawyers are experts in international divorce law.

When a divorcing couple has international connections, the question is likely to arise as to which country is most appropriate to deal with their pending separation and financial settlement.

Members of the Association of European Lawyers and Eurolegal, we work closely with our international network of trusted professionals to provide specialist international family law advice, including on the court’s jurisdiction to deal with a divorce and in which country it would be best to issue proceedings.

We can advise anyone with some degree of connection to England and Wales, regardless of where you or your assets are based. This could include being born, residing or having assets located here.

Supported by our multidisciplinary Brabners Personal offering, which provides the full range of legal services to individuals and families, our team truly understands your needs, no matter what challenges you’re facing.

Discussions around divorce are highly personal. While our expert international divorce solicitors work closely with you regardless of location, if you value face-to-face communication our warm and welcoming offices in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Lancashire are the perfect settings for these sensitive discussions.

Financial settlements after international divorce

We advise clients who seek to obtain a financial order following a divorce overseas. This may be because no financial settlement was awarded following a divorce in another country or an inadequate or unfair settlement was made.

Such applications to the Family Court in England and Wales are complex and require specialist advice. The success of an application will depend upon the individual facts of the case and it's necessary to prove a connection to England and Wales to succeed.

Our specialist international family lawyers can advise you whether there is any merit in pursuing a financial order in England and Wales following a foreign divorce.

Depending your individual circumstances, we may also be able to assist with the enforcement of foreign divorce settlements where there are assets based in England and Wales.
