On Thursday this week, Henrik Saugmandsgaard Øe, advocate general at the European Court of Justice, issued an opinion saying that a divorce under Sharia law should not be recognized. The Munich lawyer Stephan Lorenz calls this “madness” as he believes that it prevents the possibility of analyzing its validity in individual cases. The ECJ judgment is still pending; however, judges often follow such recommendations. Unjust method, good outcome The case at hand involves a couple from Syria with German nationality. They married in 1999 in Homs, Syria, before eventually moving to Germany. Four years ago in a Syrian Sharia court, […]

If you are missing the kids when they’re with the ex, you are not alone. It is an empty, sad, lonely and scary feeling for most newly separated men and women. Fortunately, I do think being apart from the kids gets much easier over time, and single parents eventually learn how to cope and actually enjoy the time they have when the kids are with the ex.  That said, in some divorce cases, men and women might lose custody and have very little time with the kids. That is very different and much more painful than not seeing your kids […]

Although to the layperson this legislation may be unfamiliar, it has provided predictability and certainty for international families and their legal advisers for […]

Ironically, despite its age, the 1973 Act provides common sense factors, which the court must take into account when deciding a fair outcome. These include: The welfare of any minor children of the family. The income, earning capacity, property and other financial resources which each spouse has – or is likely to have – in the foreseeable future. This includes, in the case of earning capacity, any increase in that capacity which it would be, in the opinion of the court, reasonable to expect a person to take steps to acquire. The financial needs, obligations and responsibilities, which each spouse […]
