Se la tua relazione presenta degli aspetti internazionali, la scelta di dove incardinare il procedimento di divorzio potrebbe fare unenorme differenza ai fini del risultato finale. Londra (che viene definita la capitale mondiale del divorzio) è nota per aver concesso cospicue elargizioni alle parti economicamente più deboli e, inoltre, le corti inglesi hanno ha unampia discrezionalità sui provvedimenti che possono assumere. La corte è chiamata a considerare le esigenze delle parti e si prefigge di dividere equamente i beni acquisiti dai coniugi nel corso del matrimonio. La corte ha anche ampi poteri per poter indagare sui beni detenuti dalle parti attraverso società e trust familiari.

La possibilità di procedere al divorzio in Inghilterra dipende sia dal diritto europeo che dalle dalle norme nazionali, ma è generalmente determinata in relazione al luogo in cui ciascun coniuge è abitualmente residente o domiciliato. Se si verifica una situazione di potenziale conflitto tra due paesi europei, può essere determinante il luogo in cui il ricorrente ha depositato il ricorso di divorzio per primo. È quindi fondamentale richiedere tempestivamente una consulenza legale.

Se un coniuge vuole trasferirsi in un altro paese con i figli, anche in questo caso può rendersi necessario un procedimento giudiziario poiché è necessario ottenere lautorizzazione dellaltro genitore o della corte. Se ti trovi in questa situazione, potrebbe essere necessario richiedere una consulenza legale. Le questioni di diritto di famiglia sono spesso delicate e possono essere difficili da affrontare con il tuo avvocato. Da Vardags comprendiamo la necessità di poterti esprimere liberamente e che spesso è più facile discutere le questioni private nella tua madre lingua. 

I servizi di Vardags si estendono anche al di là del divorzio e diritto di famiglia, fino a comprendere reputation and privacy, diritto Immobiliare, societario, penale, civile e commerciale, diritto del lavoro e negligenza professionale.

Related FAQS

This article will address the extent to which a parent can move their child away from the other parent without their consent. A distinction will be made between moving the child to another part of the UK, as well as moving abroad.
It should be noted from the outset that whether the parties have ever been married or in a civil partnership is immaterial for the purposes of relocation of the child. The important factor is whether the parent seeking to prevent the relocation has parental responsibility.

The best way to ensure your assets are protected is to conduct a thorough and accurate valuation.

In many countries, a couple can divorce with little or no financial support being given to the poorer party. Sometimes, you might not even know about the divorce until it has already been finalised. That does not prevent you from seeking the support of the English courts.

As international family lawyers, we regularly come across families who live across multiple jurisdictions whilst enjoying a happy family life.

If your ex is taking your children abroad, and you consent to that move, it will be necessary for you and your ex to discuss the practicalities of contact arrangements. To ensure regular and good quality contact, it is highly advisable that you reach a formal agreement with your ex in advance of the move. This will help pre-empt any conflicts or issues that may arise in the future.
