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’ve dealt with Mr. Brookman himself and he is very peasant to work with. Listens to your demands and is very helpful in terms of providing advice.

VERY PROFESSIONAL . My initial telephone contact to this firm was handled very professionally. First impressions really do matter. The details of my enquiry were taken and I soon became eased to believe that I being listened to and relevant details were being noted. My subsequent initial assessment interview was just as thorough and professional, consistent with my previous experience. Choosing a solicitor to act on your behalf is a very important consideration. Although my case is still on going, I have every confidence and peace of mind that I will be concluded well.
