China Divorce & Family Law

International Divorce & Family Law: China

If you are an expatriate living in China then you may find that you fall into a legal vacuum. China may refuse to deal with your matter on the basis you are not a Chinese national. The divorce rate has been going up. Traditionalists in China say this is because of the country’s transformation from a rural to an urban society. In the not so distant past divorce was considered a life-long stigma but now this is less the case. Children issues give rise to particular difficulties as the legal system is not well adjusted to solving these.

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

Excellent service. I had a consultation directly with Mr Brookman and his advice and guidance was very clear and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Deana Kendall 12/02/2020

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.

It was great to have a free initial consultation with Henry Brookman. He answered my questions, and I finished the conversation knowing what I needed to do next in order to resolve matters.
