Resolution’s guide to parenting through separation available as part of “Good Divorce Week”

As Good Divorce Week nears, our family team are offering up free support to families currently separating.

Rachel Ward, a divorce lawyer at Ward Hadaway joins 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.

As well as promoting the free guide which advises parents on how to put their children first during a separation, Rachel is also offering parents in Bollington, Prestbury, Macclesfield and surrounding areas a 30 minute consultation to talk through the issues that surround separation.  Her colleague Hollie Morgan is doing the same in the Newcastle and surrounding area, as is Andrea Dyer in Leeds and the surrounds.

Rachel 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 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 Ward Hadaway’s support during Good Divorce Week.

“Resolution members like Rachel 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.”
