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.

What our clients are saying:

‘RT’, London (March 2018)

“I contacted Brookman Solicitors with a general question in regards to a convoluted matter involving multiple countries, divorce laws, etc. I had the absolute pleasure and honour of dealing with Mr. Brookman personally. He was absolutely professional, thoughtful, insightful and genteel. I would not hesitate to employ Henry Brookman and his practice.”
