A finished marriage doesn’t have to mean a broken home. A positive separation, a fair divorce, and good parenting after your separation are all available to you, it you want them. Historically, when people consider the end of their marriage, the first person they would contact is a solicitor. Today, this is changing with remarkable speed.
For a wide variety of reasons, it is less and less likely these days for divorcing couples who want a fair divorce and a positive separation experience to reach for a lawyer as their first port of call. Yes, of course solicitors are still very much needed for many aspects of the legal side of the divorce process, but couples in the know recognise that the highly qualified solicitor sitting across from them may not actually know very much at all about parenting after separation, and that just because you could possibly achieve a certain outcome if you won in court, doesn’t mean that you have achieved a fair divorce settlement that will allow your children to receive positive parenting after your separation from you both for years to come.
Just because you and your spouse now feel that the time has come that the only option left is to separate – and to later possibly finalise that separation by way of a divorce, a finished marriage doesn’t have to mean a broken home for your children.
Family mediation provides an inexpensive alternative to the traditional, court based resolution of the many issues that stem from the end of a relationship. Achieving a fair divorce, and a positive separation experience for your children is only a phone call away.
