Does High Court decision bring an end to forum shopping in divorce proceedings?
4 June 2019
Fawn successfully acted for the husband in his appeal against a High Court decision that the wife had acquired a domicile of choice in England and could therefore bring divorce proceedings against our client in this jurisdiction. The Court of Appeal allowed the husband’s appeal and as such the wife’s divorce petition (and her financial claims) have been dismissed.
Fawn advises clients on disputes concerning their children, such as in relation to contact or living arrangements or specific issues such as schooling. She also has experience in assisting clients wishing to relocate with their children following relationship breakdown.
Fawn began her career at Stewarts in 2012 as a paralegal, following her graduation from BPP Law School. She commenced her training contract with the firm in September 2014 and qualified into the Divorce and Family department in September 2016.
