Our solicitors are experienced in acting in international divorce proceedings. A very important issue which needs to be considered at an early stage where there is the possibility of a divorce in two competing jurisdictions is which jurisdiction is most advantageous.
If the jurisdictions in question are within the European Union then various Brussels Conventions have determined that when a divorce case is issued in one EU country then it is not possible to pursue a divorce in a different EU jurisdiction. However, if the jurisdictions in dispute are not both within the EU then this is a very significant and sometimes crucial matter.
We are conscious that advice on such matters is urgently required and needs prompt action. We have a team which is capable of alerting you to the immediate issues which arise from such potential jurisdictional disputes.
Many consequences flow from which jurisdiction ultimately handles the divorce, including how maintenance issues are resolved, how family assets are divided as well as the means of enforcement.
