Today, during their marriage, people frequently cross international borders to live. At the most basic level, this often leads to assets being located in different countries.
Issues of jurisdiction, enforceability and entitlements often arise and require careful, considered advice. Starting proceedings in the wrong jurisdiction can sometimes have irreparable consequences to the outcome of your matter. We have advised clients from around the world with connections to Australia.
Our firm has been involved in several leading cases about choice of jurisdiction. We regularly advise and act on matters where we are either seeking to retain proceedings in Australia or seeking to stop them because of what is happening in other countries. We are members of the International Bar Association and the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
