Divorce and Separation

Parenting through separation – a free guide to families who are divorcing or separating

Resolution, the national family justice organisation, is offering a free guide to families who are divorcing or separating. The parenting through separation guide is written by family professionals and is full of practical steps that parents can take to put their children first during a separation.

The launch of the guide marks the start of the Good Divorce Week campaign, an annual initiative by Resolution to raise awareness of how families can separate amicably. It offers guidance on difficult issues, such as discussing divorce with children, childcare arrangements former partners need to make, and avoiding and resolving common disputes.

Susi Gillespie, partner and mediator in the family team at Thomas Mansfield Solicitors, said:

“Good Divorce Week is all about reminding parents that their separation doesn’t need to end up in court. Almost all family lawyers are keen supporters of amicable separation, especially where children are involved. We hope that the free parenting through separation guide by Resolution will equip divorcing families with better ways to communicate with their children on this highly sensitive matter.”
