What’s the first thing I should do if I want an international divorce?

If you think you would like get an international divorce it is essential that you obtain specialist legal advice from a firm such as Austin Kemp as soon as possible.

In situations such as this, speed really is of the essence in order to make sure that your divorce goes through in the country you want it to.

We would recommend that you seek advice from experts in this field, such as Austin Kemp,  before you discuss this issue with your spouse, as they could seek legal advice and start the international divorce proceedings in a country which could be seriously disadvantageous to your position.

It is best to discuss these issues with a specialist solicitor before entering into any kind of collaborative law or mediation processes.
