The Parenting Through Separation Guide is written by family professionals and advises parents on how to put their children first during a separation. The guide has been released as part of Good Divorce Week which was launched by National Family Justice Organisation Resolution. This year's week which runs between 29 Nov and 3 Dec is focused on parenting through separation.
Our experienced team of family law solicitors can advise you on all aspects of your relationship, a relationship breakdown, divorce or even a new relationship. We pride ourselves on providing clear, comprehensive and commercial legal advice from the outset. The team join with thousands of family professionals to launch the Parenting Through Separation Guide during Good Divorce Week, an annual initiative by the family justice organisation Resolution to raise awareness of how families can separate amicably.
Samantha Hickman, Partner at VWV said:
“We know that the pandemic has put huge pressure on families and even more so on those who are separating. Every parent wants to put their children’s interests front and centre, but all too often they don’t know where to turn for help and aren’t given the support they need in order to do this.
“It’s important for parents to have access to good, authoritative and professional advice that helps them to parent responsibly through their separation. We hope all local separating parents will use the Parenting Through Separation Guide, to help them find a better way forward for them, and for their children.”
The free guide is available to any parent seeking help during their separation. It contains advice about how to co-parent with a former partner, background on the common disputes that arise between separating parents, and how to talk to children about the painful topic of divorce or separation, plus much more.
Juliet Harvey, National Chair of Resolution, said:
“I’m really pleased to have VWV's support during Good Divorce Week. Resolution members like VWV do really important work in their community to help families separate in a constructive and amicable way. The more families who know about and use the free Parenting Through Separation Guide, the better equipped they will be to navigate the challenges divorce and separation brings, particularly when it comes to putting children first.”
