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.

Very helpful, and honest about my situation even though it wasn’t business for them at this time. Would recommend.

Mr Brookman is professional and dealt with my case quickly. I am very happy with the service and would recommend to anyone.

Jessica Littlemore 03/12/2020

I dealt directly with both Sarah Brookman and Lorraine Imms and felt that they both delivered both in a consistent and professional manner. I felt in safe hands with a very personal and sensitive situation. They were always available to answer my questions and helped me through the process step by step.

I was looking for initial advice that would take into account my requirements and give me realistic answers regarding my case. Mr Bookman kindly took a fairly long time to provide the advice I was looking for and even more than I was expecting. I was very impressed with the quality of service provided by Brookman Solicitors overall and would definitely recommend them.
