An article published in the Telegraph today says that Britain is the divorce capital of the world with foreign nationals coming here to start their divorce knowing they may get a much better deal than in their own country. The article doesn’t mention that for most people, the legal system is overwhelmingly confusing and they struggle with it. It is hard for someone who has had no experience of the process of law to get to grips with the long, arduous and expensive journey they have to make, especially if their divorce is contested by their ex and if the ex does not want to mediate or get involved in a collaborative process. Many of our clients who come to our groups complain about the long forms they have to fill in, the letters they have to read from their ex’s solicitor and how they don’t really understand the system. Britain may be the divorce capital of the world for the rich, but to make it sound like it is all fun and games is very far from the experience that most people have.
