If you are in an international relationship, where 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 the dispute is between two European countries, the person who petitions first may be determinative. It is therefore vital not to delay in taking legal advice promptly.
If one party wants to move to another country with the children, this can also lead to proceedings so, if you are in as 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.
