Divorce is rarely easy. When spouses have connections with more than one country, it can get even more complicated. Factors like dual nationality and overseas relocation often lead to conflicting jurisdictions. These intricacies should be addressed by skilled international divorce lawyers.
If international dimensions are a feature of your divorce, it’s important to receive reliable legal guidance as soon as possible. Not doing so might mean that your case is heard in a country that puts you at a disadvantage. Therefore, acting decisively is often the surest way to secure the right result.
Lowry Legal’s expert team has the experience to simplify this challenging situation and work towards a positive outcome.
How Lowry Legal can Help
When you work with Lowry Legal’s international divorce solicitors, our first priority will be to establish the most favourable jurisdiction for your case. This is a fundamental step that will help to secure the best outcome for you.
If the divorce is taking place in the UK, we’ll submit your application. If your spouse is living abroad, we’ll serve divorce documents according to the laws of that country. Timing is essential at this stage, so we’ll work efficiently to give you a better chance of a favourable jurisdiction.
We’ll help you to address complex factors such as overseas tax matters and business interests. This means we can use forensic accountants to uncover hidden assets where necessary. At this stage, if practical, we can prioritise mediation and collaboration, as this is often the quickest, least stressful, way to secure a positive outcome.
We can collaborate with other international divorce lawyers if there are concerns over enforcing financial settlements, child arrangements, child abduction and relocation, and any other issue related to overseas jurisdictions.

Over the 10 years she has worked on my case she has proved invaluable and succeeded in securing the best possible outcome for me. Her performance exceeded my expectations and I am now a free man.”
“As a solicitor, I know what my clients need in terms of client care and clear, experienced sensible advice. When my clients have asked me to recommend family lawyers, I know that with Katie, they are in the safest of hands.”

“As a forensic accountant, I have worked closely with Katie and her team on the financial dimension of several high value and complex cases. I have found Katie to be an excellent family law practitioner. As a shadow expert I have joined her in confrontational meetings with ‘the other side’ and have been impressed by her assured and capable manner. I have also seen how both clients and staff respect her.”
