Family Law Fact: Divorcing in the UK if you were married abroad

It is possible to commence divorce proceedings in England even if you were married abroad. Where the marriage took place is, in fact, somewhat immaterial, provided that the ceremony was carried out in accordance with the local formalities and customs of the country in which it took place. If it was, the marriage will be valid, and recognised as such in England.

Whether you can file a divorce petition in England depends upon whether certain jurisdictional criteria are met. This is set out in legislation (specifically an EU regulation, known as Brussels II). This states that the English court has jurisdiction to hear the divorce if, when the divorce petition is issued by the applicant (the person applying for a divorce), any of the following applies:

  1. Both parties to the marriage are habitually resident in England and Wales;
  2. The parties were last habitually resident in England and Wales, and one of them still resides there;
  3. The respondent is habitually resident in England and Wales;
  4. The applicant is habitually resident in England and Wales, provided they have resided there for at least one year before applying for a divorce;
  5. The applicant is habitually resident in England and Wales, provided they have resided there for at least six months before applying for a divorce and are domiciled in England and Wales;
  6. Both parties are domiciled in England and Wales; or
  7. If no EU member state has jurisdiction in accordance with the above, provided that one party is domiciled in England and Wales.
