We’re supporting Good Divorce Week 2021

29 November 2021

The journey through separation, divorce and beyond is complex and challenging, and for many, this has been heightened further throughout the pandemic. While every family is different, there are ways to help families and their children through the difficult process of separating.

We’re supporting Good Divorce Week 2021 – a national campaign to help parents embrace a child-focused approach to separation – led by Resolution, a community of family justice professionals who work to resolve issues in a constructive way.

As a team, we support many parents with all aspects of family law, including divorce and separation. Our approach is always one of understanding and fairness, and we strive to reach an amicable resolution wherever possible.

For couples who feel like no-one is to ‘blame’ for the marriage breakdown, the introduction of ‘no fault divorce’ in April 2022 will be a welcome change to the law. Currently, the law requires all couples to attribute ‘blame’ unless they have been separated for two years or more.

Regardless of the reason for a divorce, every parent wants to put their children’s interests first and Resolution are offering information, advice and support in their free Parenting Through Separation Guide’. You can also watch the following short film to discover five great ways parents can put their children first during a divorce or separation.

For further help and advice on separating or any other family law matter, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
