While our clients must have a connection to England or Wales, we are experienced in handing cases connected to countries all around the world.
Our lawyers handle cases from all over the world, including:
• European Union
• South America
• Middle East
• New Zealand
• South East Asia
In many situations, there is pressure to file legal documents as quickly as possible in order to ensure the family matter is handled in the U.K. and not in a foreign jurisdiction. For example, if you and your spouse have a home in the U.S., your spouse may want to file for divorce in your current state while you would prefer to have your divorce handled in London, where the marriage took place. Contacting our firm as soon as possible is the best way to ensure your matter is handled in the jurisdiction most beneficial to you.
We understand the communication barriers that arise in international matters. The time difference between London and other countries can be dramatic; our clients may be starting their work day when our solicitors are home for dinner. However, these barriers do not hinder our relationships with our clients or damage the transparency regarding their cases. Grayfords’ office offers extended hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., to ensure our clients are always able to get in touch with us. Additionally, we will return your email or call within 24 hours.
To find out more about jurisdiction and how it can affect your case, speak to London’s international family law experts today on 0800 222 9500 or +44 20 7874 1887 from abroad. We offer a free initial consultation and are happy to discuss the jurisdictional elements of your situation.
