Good Divorce Week 2018

A new YouGov poll this week shows that 79% of the population agree that conflict from divorce or separation can negatively impact children's mental health.

The polling has been carried out as a part of Good Divorce Week, an initiative from the national family law body, Resolution, of which Churchers are members, to highlight ways in which parents can separate in a manner that reduces conflict, and therefore lessens the impact it can have on children.

Churchers have a team of family lawyers working in Portsmouth, and the surrounding area, that regularly help separating parents, who are going through one of the most traumatic life events anyone could experience, to put the best interests of their children first. This is something everyone wants, but parents often need support in order to do this.

Parents and professionals are also hampered by the current law, which requires many divorcing couples to assign blame. That is why, this week Resolution are calling on the government to make a good on its promise to introduce No-Fault Divorce at the earliest opportunity.

Divorce is never easy, but with the help from professionals signed up to the Resolution approach, we can all help make it kinder, particularly for children.

if you would like legal assistance in relation to family, divorce or mediation, please call Churchers Solicitors on 023 9282 0747 for further information.
