Ex Pat divorce

For Ex Pats, and in any case of an international divorce, there are a number of challenges. Important points to consider where a party is overseas or is about to move overseas are:

  • The location of assets abroad
  • The transfer of money or assets overseas
  • Taxation issues
  • Jurisdictional requirements for residence and divorce
  • The relocation of children
  • The geographical differences involved and different time zones
