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.

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.

Very professional service. I have had my first consultation with Mr Brookman who listened carefully to all my worries, answered all my questions and reassured me about the expected outcome. I can not begin to say how grateful I am to him for his help.

I sent an email to book a free 45 min consultation. A senior partner answered my questions and put me at ease. No consultation needed!

I had the opportunity to meet Henry Brookman in a very difficult time of my life and he has been of great advise and support. Thank you!

I wanted to say a big thanks to Henry Bookman and his colleagues for all their help and guidance during my divorce - a long a complicated one. The team were all brilliant. I loved the fact that Henry was happy to explore possibilities and search for solutions. I also feel that on occasions he gave hope when things were against me. All told a great coach who was ready with pearls of wisdom when I needed it.
