Africa & South Africa Law

International Divorce & Family Law: Africa and South Africa

We regularly deal with South and East Africa. In 2012 we successfully concluded a ground breaking Child Support case. We are regularly consulted regarding South African prenuptial contracts and their effect under English law. We have also dealt with cases involving citizens of Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Uganda.

South African family law is based on the Roman – Dutch code, whereas East Africa derives its systems from the earlier English legislation. In many respects, the courts work in similar ways to those in England and Wales, and we frequently advise clients in relation to matters connected with those countries.

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

I recently had a free initial consultation with Henry Brookman via video conference. He was considered and meticulous in his approach and gave me well thought through advice. He followed this up with a letter in writing summarising the advice he gave me. I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone looking for legal representation in a divorce.

I met with Henry Brookman for an initial consultation in order to consider if a prenup agreement was the best course of action for my marriage. He spent the time to answer all my questions and encouraged me to do the right thing. I recommend dealing wit Henry Brookman and it was a pleasant experience.
