Our offering

If you are in an international relationship, the jurisdiction in which your divorce proceeds could make a huge difference to the final outcome. London, as the divorce capital of the world, is known for making generous awards to the financially weaker parties, and the court has a wide discretion in what it awards. Where you are entitled to divorce rests on a mixture of European and national law, but is generally determined in relation to where each party is habitually resident or domiciled. If you are concerned that your partner might start proceedings in the Netherlands, then it is very important to take legal advice to ensure your position is protected. Very often, a British person living abroad is able to access the English justice system, without necessarily being in the country at the time.

The English court will look at the needs of the parties and will look to share the assets built up during the course of the marriage. The court also has wide ranging powers to look at assets held through companies and family trusts. The English court is much more likely to order ongoing maintenance than a Dutch court. As top international family lawyers, we will fight your case across the world. This includes using our in house financial team to trace and uncover assets in overseas and offshore jurisdictions. Our experience will help you get your fair share. 

Proceedings can also be initiated if one party wants to move to another country with the children, given that the permission of the other parent, or the court, is required. If you are caught in this situation, then you may need to seek legal advice. Family law issues are often sensitive and can be difficult to address with your lawyer. At Vardags, we understand the need to express yourself freely and that it is often easier to discuss your private matters in your mother tongue.

Vardags services extend well beyond divorce and family law, and encompass reputation and privacy, property, corporate, criminal defence, commercial and civil litigation, employment, and professional negligence.
