International Divorce & Family Law: Canada & USA
With regard to the USA, we are well aware of the specific aspects of family law and how they differ from state to state. Many of the States in the North East in particular follow the common law model similar to England, whereas many Southern and Western States tend to follow the Community of Property rules derived from continental law. We have dealt with matters involving residents of New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, California, Texas, New Jersey, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida and Washington State, among others.
For more information about tax issues, alimony and pensions for US born citizens in the UK, read our page: US tax issues in financial proceedings.
Canada has a uniform law but we have dealt with matters involving the courts in Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Alberta and others.
We are specialist international divorce lawyers and family solicitors and we have advised numerous clients who are either UK–based but originate from Canada or the USA, or are living outside of the UK but have a connection with England or Wales.
