We specialise in international family law. Issues that commonly arise are:


The international aspect can be quite complex and speed of approach is vital.

How we can help

We are family law solicitors in England and Wales. James Maguire is a Fellow of the International Academy of Family Lawyers and is a member of the Law Society’s child abduction panel. He is also on the panel for a number of embassies (including the US Embassy and Canadian High Commission) and British Consulates overseas.

We are not lawyers in other jurisdictions and we work with independent lawyers around the world to resolve international family law cases.
