Life in the sunny climes of Dubai might sound like the recipe for marital bliss but reports today suggest this might not be the case.
445 expats in Dubai ended their marriage in divorce last year - an increase of more than 28% since 2009.
Dubai has not escaped the effects of these tough economic times which can compound the challenges of relocating so far from home, family and friends and put increased stress on a marriage. Frequent visits back home by one party can also provide the opportunity for adultery which is a ground for divorce.
It is particularly important to take divorce advice early when one or both of a couple live abroad. Divorce law varies dramatically between countries and where you divorce can have a significant impact on the financial divorce settlement you receive. It may be necessary to speak to divorce solicitors in different countries to ensure you get the best outcome.
