International Divorce

Divorcing in England and Wales

Contrary to popular belief, expats who are living overseas can sometimes be eligible to divorce through the English courts, as long as certain criteria are met.

Here at Austin Kemp, we are experienced at conducting the divorce process for expats. There is usually no need to come back to England at any point in the divorce process, as normally, all elements can be handled remotely, enabling you to get on with your life abroad without the added stress and expense of coming back to the UK.

We are often asked by our clients if an expat divorce takes longer than a normal divorce. In most cases, the answer is no. The process is the same as the divorces we undertake for our clients who live in England.

How long a divorce takes usually depends on the complexity of your finances. Although the financial settlement is quite separate to the divorce process itself, it usually runs concurrently with it. We usually advise our clients that a divorce takes around 4 to 6 months, although for our high net worth clients, it can be substantially longer.
