Family law professionals in Brighton & Hove are showing their support for Good Divorce Week 2020 by offering free advice sessions to families later this month.
Good Divorce Week is an annual campaign that aims to promote practical and constructive ways for separating parents to put the needs of their children first. Organised by Resolution, a community of more than 6,500 family justice professionals, this year the campaign focuses around the benefits of early legal advice, as the organisation prepares to re-launch its public-facing Code of Practice.
Resolution members believe the process of separating, sorting out finances and arranging childcare should be done in a way that minimises conflict and keeps the best interests of any children involved at the heart of proceedings.
There is no silver bullet approach to divorce, as every family is different. However, by seeking early professional advice, couples have the benefit of considering a range of options and making a decision that is most suitable to them.
To help in promoting the benefits of early legal advice, during Good Divorce Week, lawyers, mediators and financial advisors across the country will be offering 30-minute free advice sessions to those families who need it, including in [insert town].
Resolution member, Brighton & Hove Law will be offering free advice sessions during Good Divorce Week. Speaking about the campaign, they said:
“It’s very difficult for parents when they make that tough decision to separate, and often there is a significant impact on children. That’s why I am delighted to support Good Divorce Week to promote a constructive approach to this often emotionally charged matter.
“This is an opportunity for couples to fully understand all of their rights and the options open to them and separate in the most harmonious way possible.
“Far too many families have little-to-no access to professional legal advice when it comes to divorce. The free advice we are offering will give separating couples the confidence and knowledge to make the best decisions for them and their family with minimal conflict.”
Resolution was founded in 1982 by a group of family lawyers who believed that a non-confrontational approach to family law issues would produce better outcomes for separating families and their children. Over the decades, Resolution has maintained a commitment to a constructive way of working, enshrined in our Code of Practice, while growing to become a membership organisation for professionals that work with separating families.
