London Named Divorce Capital Of The World

In 2000, a landmark divorce case known as White v. White made headlines by outlining the modest redistribution of shared property and finances following a married couple’s divorce. The House of Lords, which oversaw the case, determined that courts should settle terminations of marital unions by handing down decisions reflecting the wealth of the parties involved rather than solely concentrating on their needs.

This decision has led many to believe that English law is much more generous for divorcing couples than elsewhere in the world. One such person to benefit from this decision was Heather Mills, former wife of Paul McCartney. Mills secured 24.3 million pounds ($36.6 million) from the settlement. That same year, Orianne Cevey secured 25 million pounds ($37.6 million) from former husband Phil Collins.

However, recent statistics show that London may lose its status to Hong Kong, China. One of the causes listed is London divorce attorneys overcharging clients for their services. An average divorce in the English city runs 1,300 pounds; nearly $2,000. The costs of lengthy litigation and longer resolution times may result in Hong Kong taking the title of Divorce Capital of the World.
