We understand that parents in the midst of separation often feel plagued with guilt at the thought of how the end of their relationship will affect their children. In order to keep the negative impact on the family to a minimum it is important to establish ongoing co-operation and communication between separating parents.
A range of options is available to resolve the issues that may arise during this time:
Mediation is an alternative way to resolve family disputes out of Court and enables couples to work through any issues in a controlled environment.
Collaborative law is a legal process that enables separating couples to work with their lawyers to achieve a settlement that best meets the individual needs of both parties and the children.
Family therapy and counselling
Family therapy and counselling helps families work towards maintaining a happy family life for the children and ensures that a line of open communication is established between separating parents.
In the event that the above options are not feasible, family cases can be brought to court to come to a formal agreement for issues involving children, including where the children will live.
