International Divorce & Family Law: China, Japan and Wider Asia
We regularly deal with clients living in China, Hong Kong and Japan. In particular, the Kyogi Rikon procedure often involves issues. We also have acted for residents of Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.
The family law systems of these very varied regions reflect their wide range of cultural heritages. This produces complicated issues of enforcement in different countries. It also produces particular problems for foreigners resident in those countries, because there are very different rules as to what level of access they can get to the domestic courts of the country in which they live.
We are specialist international divorce lawyers and family solicitors and we advise clients who are either UK–based but originate from China, Japan or South East Asia, or are living outside of the UK but have connection with England or Wales.
