We understand that, in the event of a relationship breaking down overseas, the resulting complexities require specialist advice.  We are here to help and have that expertise.

International aspects on separation may be relevant whether you have relocated abroad or, as is often the case, one party is working abroad and the other remains in England close to the children’s schools and extended family. 

You cannot underestimate the importance of sound advice where there are international aspects because the following all count:

  • Jurisdiction: where to issue and when
  • Process: mediation, collaboration and negotiation are all still possible
  • Security and family cohesiveness: where a family is divided by borders, we recognise that it may be more important for decisions to be made together in order to cement family links across the globe.

We are able to provide advice and support with regard to international issues, to include:

  • Where to issue proceedings
  • International trusts issues
  • Removal from the jurisdiction
  • Financial relief following an overseas divorce

What our clients say

'I was greatly relieved by the efficient and informed level of advice I received. Salient information was conveyed quickly and clearly. I was given an overview of my case and the strengths and weaknesses of my legal position, which was justified with relevant experience and information. When I raised issues, these were responded to without undue delay. On any occasion where my solicitor was not available, I felt her personal assistant was genuinely well informed of the details of my case and capable of dealing with or referring ongoing matters as required.'

What our clients say

"I wish I had known about Stone King during my divorce. Mediation during my divorce was useless. Stone King made me feel for the first time I was being treated fairly. It was impossible to have any mediation with my ex husband until Stone King. They are brilliant and look at both sides in an objective way. It's a unique way of doing mediation that actually works."
