The Family Court has an established jurisdiction in cases concerning allegations of transnational marriage abandonment (sometimes also referred to as “stranded spouses”) and the Practice Direction Re S (Wardship) Guidance in Cases or Stranded Spouses [2011] 1 FLR 319 contains guidance in relation to the approach to be taken to these cases.

Out members are regularly instructed on behalf of all parties and we are able to advise in respect of all aspects of proceedings including the the type of application that should be made, the evidence required, whether a fact-finding hearing is necessary, and advice in relation to how to navigate the complex immigration issues that can often arise. We are very experienced in providing advocacy at trials which often take place in the High Court with evidence often being given by video-link or through an interpreter.
