The Family Law Team

Giambrone is one of Italy’s leading family law firms. We can help you with your divorce.

The firm welcomes clients with different nationalities from around the world and our multi-lingual lawyers can assist clients involved in complex cross-border divorce cases. Our lawyers act for international clients across Europe who are embarking on divorce or separation in Italy, Spain or other regimes.

Custodial and Parental Rights & New Family Structures

The firm advises on all areas of family and children’s law, including custodial parental rights and the creation of alternative family structures. The firm has a specialist children department with specific expertise in all aspects of international children law.

Our lawyers can also advise on Special Guardianship Orders.

Matrimonial and Divorce Lawyers

We understand that going through a divorce can be an upsetting experience and our Italian lawyers will put you at ease by advising you at every stage of the process. The wealth of expertise our team have in handling cross-border divorce allows us to undertake matters as swiftly as possible, minimising the impact of the stress involved in the process.

Our firm offers a comprehensive range of family law services which include divorce and separation, children and financial disputes, civil partnerships (international solutions for Italian residents or rights of foreign gay couples living permanently in Italy) cohabitation issues and associated property disputes. Our Italian divorce lawyers have experience of international child abduction. We also deal with personal protection and harassment issues which may feature domestic violence.

Our clients include high net worth and high achieving clients many of whom are in the public eye. We are experienced in dealing discretely with high profile clients, their needs and their media-sensitive information.

Our Italian divorce lawyers regularly advise in cases involving the choice of jurisdiction in relation to international assets. Couples who have sufficient connection with a foreign country may have a choice as to the jurisdiction in which they would prefer to divorce.

The consequences of obtaining a divorce in one jurisdiction as opposed to another may be very different. Our experienced family lawyers can advise on the benefits and detriments of the potential jurisdictions to ensure that the correct choice is made to provide the most favourable result, taking into account the comparative financial settlements, costs, timescale and ease of enforcing any orders obtained.

Within European Union countries, it is crucial to be the first to issue proceedings in the chosen jurisdiction as whoever is first to start the action in their chosen jurisdiction is where the divorce will be heard.  It is imperative to act as speedily as possible to prevent the other spouse from issuing in another less favourable EU country.

Our specialist Italian divorce lawyers are well-regarded in the field of Italian child abduction, children disputes and forced marriage cases. The firm has specialists who speak English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Arabic.

Giambrone’s family team includes members of the International Bar Association as well as other international family law organisations and has well-established connections with other international law firms worldwide.
