Resolution’s Good Divorce Week takes place this week (29 November to 3 December 2021) and aims to raise awareness of the benefits of using a Resolution member to advise and support you through divorce or separation.

Separation can be a difficult decision for an individual or couple to come to. The impact of a split will often involve and impact upon others, such as children and naturally there is often a desire by parents to mitigate unnecessary anxiety and conflict. This year, Resolution has a particular focus on how parents can embrace a child-focused approach to separation and a guide has been produced to support families and provide helpful information.

Resolution was founded in 1982 and today is a community of more than 6,500 family law professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way. Resolution membership is about the approach we take to our work and all members sign up to a code of practice. This Code of Practice is at the heart of Good Divorce Week and there are considerable benefits of choosing a Resolution member to support you through your divorce including:

  1. They listen to you, are honest with you and treat you with respect.
  2. They explain all the options and give you the confidence to make the right decisions.
  3. They help you focus on what is important in the long term.
  4. They help you balance financial and emotional costs with what you want to achieve.
  5. They work with others to find the right approach and the best solutions for you.
  6. They help manage stress in what can already be a very stressful situation.

Resolution members take an approach which means they will:

  1. Reduce and manage any conflicts and confrontations for example by not using inflammatory language.
  2. Support and encourage families to put the best interests of any children first.
  3. Act with honesty, integrity and objectivity.
  4. Help clients understand and manage the potential long term financial and emotional consequences of decisions.
  5.  Listen to and treat everyone with respect and without judgement.
  6. Use experience and knowledge to guide clients through the options available to them.
  7. Continually develop their own knowledge and skills and finally use the Resolution Good Practice Guides to assist through their day to day work.
