The short answer is yes, but there are certain requirements that need to be met if you want to file for divorce in England and Wales if you live abroad.
It would be best for you to contact a Divorce Solicitor, who would consider the circumstances of your marriage, where you’ve lived previously and where you live now and where your former partner lives. Once the Solicitor has all this information, they will also consider your connection to these countries.
There’s no doubt that times have changed.
In the past, if you got married in England or Wales and were born here, you would most likely have spent your life here. But one of the biggest changes has been that people now travel all over the world and live in different countries and some get married in remote locations.
As a result of these changes, all those things need to be considered before a Divorce Solicitor can be sure that England and Wales has jurisdiction to deal with your divorce.
