Head of Family, Children and Divorce
Trainee Chartered Legal Executive
Disputes, however they arise, can be time consuming and stressful and this is particularly the case where a marriage or relationship has broken down. An acrimonious divorce can be damaging not just to the couple concerned but also to their children, extended family and support network. Anything that can be done to ease the situation and promote construction discussions is worth considering.
Most people going through a divorce or separation wish to avoid going to court if at all possible. The good news is that in many cases court is a last resort and there are many other options for couples to explore to discuss and resolve their differences.
At Raworths, we are committed to, wherever possible, adopting a non-confrontational approach to dealing with relationship breakdown, and to encouraging couples to look at what is best for the family as a whole. All our specialist family lawyers are members of Resolution and follow its Code of Conduct to help clients in this way. Carmelita Ardren is also both a Resolution Advanced Accredited Specialist in Complex Financial affairs and Private Children Matters and the Law Society Advanced Family Law Panel.
