UK Divorce Lawyer Jurisdiction Issues
Scotland and Northern Ireland are two separate legal jurisdictions and are independent of England and Wales which is one joint juridiction. Certain legislation passed by Parliament in London effectively applies throughout the United Kingdom however some statutes apply only to the individual jurisdictions. Scotland and Northern Ireland have separate parliaments to deal specifically with local issues. Solicitors in each of the three jurisdictions usually become qualified in that particular jurisdiction due to the variations in the law for each area however some individuals do become dually qualified and are allowed to practice in more than one jurisdiction. Whilst the law outlined on this website generally refers to England and Wales there are often very close similarities with the law in Scotland and Northern Ireland which is in most cases identical. Enquiries to this site are referred for advice to solicitors in the relevant jurisdiction and any authorised legal action is taken by a solicitor in the correct location. Our solicitors are able to deal with matrimonial cases throughout the UK and in addition we have panel lawyers in the USA, Canada, Australia and The Republic Of Ireland. We are also able to deal with matrimonial cases throughout the European Union and in certain other countries.
