Brexit – How one divorce will affect another
Whilst the UK is facing a significant amount of uncertainty regarding its future and the impact of Brexit, the Family Law team at Davies and Partners Solicitors have been considering the implications of Brexit on divorces. At the moment, all countries within the EU operate on a ‘first past the post’ system where the country in which proceedings are issued first will be the country that has conduct of the case. However, if the UK exits the European Union, there will no longer be a requirement for this system to apply. Will UK law still allow for similar rules to apply? Will there be more difficulty when deciding which country should deal with a divorce? This will all depend on the law adopted by the UK after Brexit.
