We live in the age of the international family. People travel for work, they may meet a future spouse from a different country, the family may move to different countries to live during the course of their marriage.
If a marriage breaks down and the parties to the marriage have connections to more than one country, it is important to take urgent advice in the relevant jurisdictions to determine which country is best placed to deal with divorce.
Divorce law and consequent financial provision in each jurisdiction may be very different. Divorce in one country may result in a very different financial outcome to another. Timing in terms of who starts a divorce in which country can be key and sometimes speed is of the essence. If you believe jurisdiction may be an issue in your case please take urgent legal advice. To expedite matters we can give initial advice over the telephone if necessary.
