Mexico Divorce & Family Law

Mexico deals with divorce matters for its own residents.  Usually, to initiate a divorce, you must be a legal resident in Mexico.  Because Mexico operates a federal system, there can be a great discrepancy between different states and how they operate.

The quality of the system in Mexico is generally considered as variable.  If a party is undertaking litigation against a Mexican national in Mexico, where the Applicant is non-Mexican, then they may be at a considerable disadvantage.

Mexico is a signatory to The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, but its observance of its treaty obligations are generally considered weak.  For example, the US State Department of the United States government considers Mexico to be non-compliant.  Cases involving Mexican nationals taking children to Mexico, where there may be deemed to be a threat of the child being retained in that jurisdiction should be treated very seriously and immediate advice should be sought from us.

We are specialist international divorce lawyers and family solicitors and we advise clients who are either UK-based but originate from Mexico, or are living outside of the UK but have a connection with England or Wales.

I wanted to say a big thanks to Henry Bookman and his colleagues for all their help and guidance during my divorce - a long a complicated one. The team were all brilliant. I loved the fact that Henry was happy to explore possibilities and search for solutions. I also feel that on occasions he gave hope when things were against me. All told a great coach who was ready with pearls of wisdom when I needed it.

I would strongly recommend this firm. I had the opportunity to discuss my case thoroughly with Mr Bookman. But before the initial consultation, I had a telephone conversation with a legal assistant who took most of the details down, so that my initial consultation was to the point I appreciate the advice given by Mr Bookman and think it a humble approach that the initial consultation is FREE and carried by the most senior member of the firm and not by a junior staff like it happens in other firms.

Aziz Malik. Unbelievably good. Fantastic advice and was able to manage my difficult family law case to a superb outcome. Highly recommended.

I did a consultation with Henry and I highly recommend him. He took the time to understand my situation, checked that he had all the information he needed and once he realized he was not the best person for my case, he recommended another lawyer in another country who could help. Unlike other lawyers I've worked with previously, he was extremely honest, transparent and generous with his time.

The professionalism and speed at which Mr Henry responded to the initial enquiry was remarkable and the advice provided was detailed and clear.
