Forum shopping is the term used to describe the process of identifying the most advantageous forum/country in which to commence divorce proceedings. Forum shopping occurs when the parties to a divorce have connections to more than one country. Outcomes can vary hugely from one country to another. In order to identify the most advantageous forum an evaluation of the likely outcomes in each of the relevant countries must be undertaken. The anticipated financial outcome is likely to be a major consideration but is just one of a number of different factors to consider.
