Divorce Litigation

Married business and professional people who spend lots of time overseas - increasingly the thing to do when building a business, or just having fun, in the global village - become ever more subject to an increasing number of legal jurisdictions.

The model of a family unit that has a single permanent residency is becoming increasingly outmoded. But, in spite of the trend towards globalization, there continue to be very sharp differences between the divorce laws of many different countries -- and even between the laws of different provinces or states within the same country. In addition, the procedures of courts in different countries vary enormously.

As a result, the decision about which law applies to a divorce, custody, support or other matrimonial case and the decision as to which court will hear the case can have an enormous impact on the eventual outcome of the case. These issues are often extremely complex and confusing, even to lawyers are very familiar with the laws of their local jurisdiction.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson
