Expatriate Law – About Us
We are a specialist team of international divorce and family lawyers, advising British expatriates living abroad, and multinational families living in England. Our firm’s particular expertise is advising high net worth individuals on cross border divorce and family law matters.
Contact us for confidential advice if:
- You were born in England or Wales.
- Your spouse was born in England or Wales.
- You have property or other assets in England or Wales.
- You or your spouse live in England or Wales.

We appreciate that living in a foreign country, it can be difficult to know where to turn for accurate and trusted advice. Unfamiliar and conflicting laws make divorcing abroad a potential minefield. Our firm only advises international and expatriate families, and so on a daily basis we assist British clients residing in Dubai, Singapore, Qatar, Cyprus, Thailand and other expat hubs. We also have particular expertise in advising international families that may be working in England or staying here temporarily.
We not only advise on divorce and separation, but also child related family law issues such as child relocation, child arrangements, protection of children and safeguards.
