Our family law solicitors have extensive experience of acting in cases where English divorce proceedings are running alongside religious divorces. We are aware of the additional issues faced by those experiencing relationship breakdown when the client comes from either a Muslim, Hindu, Jewish or other religious background.
We act sensitively in cases where multi-cultural issues and considerations based upon creed predominate. Our team will consider the religious aspects of your divorce and advise you of the options that are open to you, support you through the formalities required, and the options if your spouse refuses to cooperate.
Our solicitors can also advise clients on wealth protection issues prior to marriage and advise clients upon the options available to them upon marriage breakdown.
In particular, we advise clients who have entered into a religious ceremony of marriage which has not been registered as a civil ceremony of marriage in this jurisdiction. We also advise clients who wish to issue legal proceedings in this jurisdiction after a foreign divorce.
