Distance is No Object: International Family Law Services

Our clients often lead a global lifestyle, living or working abroad with family remaining in the UK.

However, as an expat, you can still become a party to legal proceedings within England involving divorce, dissolution of a civil partnership, financial issues or disputes over custody of children.

Distance is no object

At LGFL Ltd, we are regularly instructed by clients living outside of the UK, as far afield as Hong Kong, the Middle East, the US and Asia. We will advise you on matters relating to jurisdiction, and how your rights are affected by international conventions, and logistical concerns such as distance.

International child custody

We also work with parents wishing to remove children from the jurisdiction either temporarily or permanently, or by parents wishing to defend such applications. If you have concerns in this area, and are currently overseas, do please contact us on +44 (0)1189 735521. We aim to respond to all enquiries within 48 hours.

Working with you, wherever you are

At LGFL Ltd, we can communicate with you via Skype, telecom or email to ensure that you are regularly kept updated and involved in your case. We will respond to your communication swiftly, often on the same day and with due consideration to time differences where possible.

How to contact us

Should you wish to discuss your case with one of our Directors, please contact us via email to request a free 30 minute telephone or Skype consultation* to assess your specific requirements.

“I took the advice from a friend who recommended I give Rita a call. From our initial conversation Rita set my expectations and in the following months exceeded them. Trips from London to the LGFL office were not required as everything was conducted via e-mail or over the phone which suited me as I could not take time away from work.

Rita is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, approachable, friendly & I would not hesitate in recommending Rita to my friends in the future.”
