Good Divorce Week 2020

Good Divorce Week

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dealing with separation and divorce is difficult. Emotions are high and even if two people both agree to separate, the changes can be so stressful that conflict and confrontation can seem inevitable. However, this doesn’t need to be the case. We want to demonstrate the benefits of early professional advice which can help prevent unnecessary and damaging conflict when a couple make the painful decision to divorce – particularly where children are involved. There is no one size fits all approach to divorce as every family and relationship is different. However, professional advice delivered early can help people think through their options and decide which process or combination of processes would be most suitable. Our Family Solicitors can help explain all the options open to separating couples, including alternatives to court where they are appropriate, such as mediation and arbitration. This will give separating couples the confidence and knowledge to make the best decisions for them and their family.

Good Divorce Week is organised by Resolution, a community of more than 6,500 family justice professionals, of which our Family Team are members. Resolution members commit to a Code of Practice which promotes a constructive approach to family issues that considers the needs of the whole family and keeps the best interests of any children involved at the heart of proceedings. Our commitment to the Code means we believe the process of separating, sorting out finances and making arrangements for children can be done in a way that minimises conflict and promotes amicable agreements.

Good Divorce Week is a chance for people who usually have little to no access to professional advice to seek it out and make the best-informed decisions for them and their family. Every very family and relationship is different, however, professional advice delivered early can help people think through their options and decide which process or combination of processes would be most suitable. As always, our team of Family Solicitors are available to speak with you and can offer fixed-fee consultation meetings to help you understand the next steps.
