Divorce is the process whereby a marriage is completely dissolved and the assets and responsibilities once shared are either cancelled or redistributed.
International divorce is required when a divorce occurs in a country other than where your permanently reside. this can be due to you and your partner moving to another country, or both of you living in separate countries.
In this instance, it is important to realise the differences in divorce proceedings for each of these locations, which is why investing in the correct legal team is essential.
Divorce is typically a complicated matter in both a legal sense and personal sense for those involved and requires assistance from legal experts to help create a smooth transition from start to finish.
The most common concern in a divorce dispute with an international element is where proceedings should be issued. This is often referred to as “forum shopping”, as different countries have their own divorce laws, which can result in very diverse outcomes relating to financial matters on divorce. It is therefore important to consider the implications of choosing one jurisdiction over another, particularly as different countries have their own rules relating to disclosure of evidence and the power of the Courts to make various orders relating to finances on divorce.
Additionally, if you or your partner have any offshore trusts or investments, you will need specialist advice as to how to address these elements in the context of your divorce.
