Meet The Team

Many of the cases we see at Bell & Buxton Solicitors now feature an international element. We live in a global society and Sheffield is recognised for its rich and diverse multicultural heritage.

International family law issues arise either because couples met or married abroad; or when couples are made up of different nationalities.  This can add a layer of complexity to the divorce and separation process, particularly if there are children from the relationship or complex financial arrangements.

We have experience of handling a wide range of international family law matters, from those involving the relocation of children to a foreign country and arrangements for children whose parents live in different countries; to parties who have assets based abroad.

Bell and Buxton Solicitors is one of only a very small number of UK law firms to offer Notary Services; this means we have specialist knowledge of how the law works in inter-jurisdictional situations and have an ability to authenticate legal documents for use abroad.
