Complex International Disputes

Complex International Disputes

Our specialist team of solicitors and lawyers understands that the number of families migrating to other areas of the UK or other countries is increasing. Many of these families will have connections to these countries or a different part of the UK, where they have built and developed a business and/or hold personal interests.

If you have a connection to another country or a different part of the UK, you or your partner might choose to start divorce or dissolution proceedings in that area. The area in which your divorce, dissolution or other court proceedings takes place is known as the "jurisdiction".

Jurisdictions may approach your case in different ways, particularly with regard to financial matters. Where there is more than one jurisdiction in which your divorce could take place, this can often lead to a race between the parties to be the first to issue proceedings and this could have a detrimental impact on the outcome of your proceedings.

Our team at Montecristo LLP can provide a wide range of advice on issues concerning:

  • divorce and separation
  • pre- and post-nuptial agreements
  • financial disputes following the breakdown of a relationship
  • relocation and other matters affecting children
  • acquiring UK residence and moving residence from the UK
  • the acquisition and disposal of UK residential and commercial property

Our team of experienced solicitors and lawyers often travel overseas regularly to advise our clients on all aspects of their proceedings. We have strong links with professionals in other jurisdictions — in particular, the Middle East, Central Asia, Japan, Korea, North America, Central America, China, India, Pakistan, Hong Kong and Europe — and we are able to work with them and with our clients to achieve the best overall outcome.

*Our family team offers both fixed fees and flexible pricing on pre- and post-nuptial agreements.
