The tax issues around marriage and divorce can be complex, particularly if you are both from different countries or live outside your home country.
Divorce is one of life’s most stressful events, and the emotional fallout is difficult enough to deal with without having multiple tax concerns to worry about as family assets and wealth are divided.
Our team is uniquely placed to guide you through the maze of UK and US tax issues around marriage or divorce, helping you to optimise your international tax position, whether that’s part of an immediate problem such as how to own property, or part of a longer term wealth management and wealth transfer plan.
In the event of divorce, our team can be part of collaborative meetings or lawyer-led mediation, produce reports for court proceedings and be called as expert witnesses, whether instructed on a single or joint basis by the legal teams involved, all with the goal of minimising the tax impact of any settlement.
Our close links with specialist family law and private client teams in a number of leading law firms means we have a solid network of legal professionals to call on for drafting documents and implementing the legal aspects of tax optimisation strategies.
