Marriage laws are reciprocal between the US and Great Britain. Marriages performed in one are honored in the other, as are divorces granted.

If all you want is a divorce, that is uncomplicated and can be accomplished at home. Most such divorces are uncontested by the other party, as such marriages do tend to be irretrievably broken. Often the spouse fails to respond, and the divorce is granted by default.

The complications arise in the matter of division of property, alimony and child support. If you want to secure support or property, it would be best to file in the country where the spouse and property are located, as divorce settlements are not necessarily reciprocal, i.e., there may be no practical way to enforce them.

These issues can get extremely complicated if you have an uncooperative spouse, especially if children are involved. A good attorney would be a must if there are encumberances.

Can a child automatically be a US citizen if they are born to a parent who is a US citizen because their parent was a US citizen?

It depends- if the father and grandfather have lived in the U.S., then yes the child would be a citizen. However, if the father has lived most iof his life outside the U.S., then it is highly unlikely that the child would be considered a U.S. citizen- even though his father and grandfather were U.S. citizens. Example: Grandfather was born and raised in the U.S. [GRANDFATHER IS A US CITIZEN] Grandfather moves to France at age 20. Grandfather marries a French lady and has a son [SON IS CONSIDERED TO BE A US CITIZEN] Son has lived his entire life and at age 20, the son marries a local French lady. Son's wife gives birth to a girl [THE GIRL IS NOT A US CITIZEN]. This is true even though her grandfather and father were U.S. citizens.
