Mediation

Top tips for providing support to a loved one when a relationship ends

  1. Encourage them to keep communicating with their former partner.
  2. Try not to take sides. Remember that any children are a mix of both their parents.
  3. Try not to say negative things about the other person, especially if the children can hear.
  4. Encourage them not to make hasty decisions, rather encourage them to think about how they want things to be in the future.
  5. Help them to be flexible and compromise where possible: they may be co-parenting for many years.

January and Divorce – is there another way?

Traditionally the beginning of a new year is often the busiest for family solicitors in terms of new enquiries. However according to the BBC (4th January 2019) 13 people completed online divorce applications on Christmas Day, 26 on Christmas Eve and 23 on Boxing Day. Sadly these figures together with a similar high number being recorded for New Year’s Day applications unfortunately show that for many families, the festive season proves to be one stress too many, to such an extent that they feel they have no other choice but to call time on their marriage.
