Expatriate Divorce

Many expatriates living overseas imagine that they cannot get a divorce in the UK if they do not live there. This is not so. Expats originally from England or Wales, but living overseas, can usually get a divorce through the English courts, just as quickly and easily as if they were living there.

Divorce or separation causes many of the same problems wherever you live, but as an expat you will face added complications. For example, if an Expat wants to get a divorce while they are living in Dubai, in the UAE, a Muslim country, specialist legal knowledge of the overlap between the jurisdictions is essential.
