Whilst we were in the EU there were clear rules about how the cross-border legal disputes for families could be resolved . It is a complex area but if we are not party to certain conventions there is a lack of consistency and parties may have difficulty in dealing with their divorce settlements .The suggestion is that this is an attempt  to erode London’s position as a global centre for dispute resolution and whilst politicians may resolve the issue if you are involved in an international family case then legal advise is going to be more essential than ever.
