Matrimonial Disputes

Jurisdictional rules play a crucial role in determining which country's courts have the authority to hear a divorce case and make decisions regarding the financial aspects of divorce. Belgravia Law, as a leader in the field of divorce law, is well-versed in these complex rules.
The rules of jurisdiction vary from country to country, but they generally consider factors such as the parties' residence, nationality, location of their matrimonial home and where the marriage took place.
Once jurisdiction is established, the court in that country can address various financial issues related to the divorce, including property division, spousal support, child support, and child custody matters. The court's decisions in these matters can have significant implications for the parties involved.
