A local family lawyer is offering parents in Kent a free guide that contains advice and information to help them put children first during a separation or divorce.
Julie joins 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.
Julie Dann a Solicitor with Warners Solicitors 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 Julie’s support during Good Divorce Week. Resolution members like her 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.”
As part of The Good Divorce Week, Warners Solicitors has launched three new podcasts focussing on Family Law. The aim of the podcasts is to provide information on the sometimes complex legal processes in a way that is easy to follow and understand.
In the first podcast, Matthew Aves talks about how arrangements can be made for children when their parents are separating. He discusses how some of the contentious issues can be dealt with and how parents can make sure that the children’s interests are put first.
In the second podcast, Keith Unger answers some frequently asked questions about the divorce process. This is an ideal podcast for anyone who may be going through a divorce and wants to find out about the different stages, timescales and costs involved. Keith also explains some of the legal terms that you may come across.
In the final podcast in this series, Rebecca Massam answers some frequently asked questions on Alternative Dispute Resolution in Family Law. She talks about the various options that are available as an alternative to going to court. These include mediation and collaborative law.
