International travel is commonplace and as a consequence families with an international element are equally more commonplace. People are forming relations with different nationals or marrying in different countries, having children with different nationalities, moving for work purposes and acquiring assets abroad. The adoption of children from abroad is also growing.
Family matters with an international factor can add a complexity that requires specialist advice.
Our specialist family team can assist with the following:-

We can represent you for the following matters:
Child abduction is a serious, but sometimes misunderstood, area of family law. Most people think it involves a stranger kidnapping a child. However, a mother taking her own child abroad for a short period of time and without the consent of the father may actually be guilty of child abduction in the eyes of the family law courts.
The practice of Female Genital Mutilation was made illegal in the United Kingdom in 1985. Despite this, the abominable practice continues to the present day, with the first FGM Protection Order only being issued in July 2015. We all need to speak up about this act and protect those who are vulnerable from being harmed.
Whether you are a person wishing to adopt a child or the parent of a child being placed for adoption, we can help you through the process that will inevitably change your life and the lives of your children.
A forced marriage occurs when either or both parties have been pressured into marrying, without giving their consent and some element of duress is involved. Duress can involve physical and sexual abuse or may involve psychological and emotional pressure. For example family members may insist that rejection of the marriage may bring shame to the family; or arrangements for the marriage may be made without the intended bride/groom being told the purpose of the trip.
You have the right to choose who you marry, when you marry and if you marry at all.
Following the breakdown of a relationship, decisions concerning the arrangements for a child can be the most difficult to make. This is especially so if one of the parents wishes to move to another country. Before a child can be taken out of the country to live, the written consent of every person with parental responsibility must be obtained. In the absence of consent, the permission of the court is required.
Gill Noury is an excellent International Family Law Senior Legal Advisor. As my international child abduction case progressed in 2014 to a fortunate consent order after 5 months of intense legal battle I realized she was highly experienced and hands on. She not only provided me very good legal advice, but was also very sympathetic to my distraught situation. She was accessible all the times I needed to communicate with her or needed her personal support. She was at the same time very professional and demonstrated high integrity and human values. I found these attributes scarce in UK's legal practitioners.

I think Helen has done amazingly and fought really hard for my case. It is only due to her that I have my son back. I like that Helen is direct and to the point and if I’m not doing something that I should be, then Helen will tell me straight up. Helen is passionate about what she does and I am really grateful to her.
