Thomas Mansfield’s team of specialist international divorce and family lawyers is based in the UK but our clients come from Aix-en-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and all areas of France. We advise British expats living in France, French individuals married to UK nationals and French families living in the UK.

We have French speaking solicitors and a strong association with French law firm Alvarez & Arlabosse in South France and we are regularly instructed by clients based on the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

Choosing where to divorce

Choosing where to divorce can make a big difference to your case. London is known as the ‘divorce capital of the world’ because, unlike most European countries, the British courts start with the presumption that the matrimonial assets should be divided equally. They also provide for spousal maintenance. If you are considering divorce you should not delay issuing proceedings because the first party to issue proceedings is likely to determine which country the case will be heard in.

International family law team

Our team of international lawyers is headed by Anthony Kiernan, who has been a member of the French bar for 10 years, and has extensive experience of cross jurisdictional divorces, custody disputes and disputes involving the Hague Convention. He is often consulted or referred to by other English solicitors on French related matters and French lawyers on family law matters in England. Anthony is assisted by Sophia Kelly, a paralegal based in our family law team in the London City office. Both Anthony and Sophia are French speakers.
