A multi-millionaire has criticised his wife for seeking an order for spousal maintenance against him in the English courts after their divorce had previously been dealt with by the courts in Slovenia.

We often come across cases where one half of a separated couple is living abroad whilst the other remains in the UK. The way in which a couple's finances are dealt with on divorce can vary a lot from country to country. In this sort of situation, it's vital to get advice on your position as early as possible, as once one party has started proceedings in one jurisdiction the other party usually cannot then do so elsewhere.
