Foreign Bank Accounts & Assets Abroad

Foreign bank accounts and assets abroad can present problems in divorce settlements and these problems have to be considered early on.

The first problem is how do you find out about them? The English Courts have extensive powers to order disclosure where there is information to suggest there is a basis to do so. Often this is ordered at the same time as a freezing order is made.

The second problem is often how you can enforce a transfer of a foreign asset? This is where early consideration pays off. Different rules apply depending on the types of assets. For example the transfer of land titles is subject to different rules than sharing a foreign pension.

A further frequent problem concerns whether the asset should be regarded as matrimonial property. That requires looking at the history of how the asset came in to existence.

Valuation of foreign assets can often be difficult. English law again is pretty efficient at ordering prompt accurate valuations, but sometimes locating the right experts to carry them out can be a challenge.

Henry Brookman has long experience of dealing with all these questions and would be pleased to help you if your case involves assets abroad.

‘JC’, London

“Brookman Solicitors without exaggeration saved my life. From an unjust and completely incorrect judgement from a district judge in my divorce proceedings that would have bankrupt me. The team of Aziz Malik Brookman Solicitors and associate Barristor Peter Duckworth professionally requested permission to appeal, were granted permission then won the appeal.

The ruling from the district judge was completely thrown out, I only wish there were some repercussions in regard to the DJ for such a travesty of justice. The appeal was in front of a much more qualified judge, QC Wildblood. Having such a professional team sat in front of you gave me great confidence that justice would prevail and it did. They made the other side look fools and the judge agreed so much in fact the following comment was put on record “As one would expect from Mr. Duckworth this is a highly focussed and well directed application for permission to appeal” Judge Wildblood QC “it is obvious that permission to appeal must be given and the appeal must be allowed”

Brookman Solicitors thank you very much, I would recommend you to anyone. I am so happy now and have moved on in life.”

I had been referred by a friend who has a close connection with the firm. I met with Mr Henry Brookman who offered me a free initial consultation to discuss my matter. Mr Brookman is very thorough and has great attention to detail and care. I genuinely feel that he has a great understanding of my circumstances and situation. Moving forward, I have received continuous updates (when relevant) regarding developments to my situation and all correspondences are clear. I feel confident with Mr Brookman's guidance and excellent team! Though my matter is still on-going for the time being, I cannot highly recommend enough! In any event, I will always be eternally grateful to Mr Brookman and his team.

Very professional service. I have had my first consultation with Mr Brookman who listened carefully to all my worries, answered all my questions and reassured me about the expected outcome. I can not begin to say how grateful I am to him for his help.
