White Collar Crime

In an increasingly mobile world, more and more people move abroad to work or live. As a result, relationships between people of different nationalities or marriages taking place in different countries are becoming more common. Equally the ownership of property overseas is more commonplace.

When such relationships breakdown, the international jurisdictions that may be involved can create additional challenges in resolving issues involved in separation and divorce, including financial settlements and arrangements involving children.

The Family Law team at Mackrell Turner Garrett in central London and Surrey is skilled and experienced in dealing with family matters involving international jurisdictions and provides a fast, responsive service where urgent action may be necessary. Our services include:
