The Family Law Co- National Family Dispute Resolution Week & Domestic Abuse Awareness Week
Industry: Legal Services
The Family Law Company by Hartnell Chanot show full support for this week’s National Family Dispute Resolution & Domestic Abuse Awareness Week.
Devon (PRUnderground) December 6th, 2013
The 25th to 29th November was National Family Dispute Resolution Week. An event organised by Resolution, a national group of specialist family lawyers, as well as other member organisations of the Family Mediation Council who have joined forces to help support Dispute Resolution Week. Here at The Family Law Company by Hartnell Chanot we fully support efforts to raise further awareness of these valuable practices.
As we offer the South West’s most comprehensive range of alternatives to court including Couples Mediation, Collaborative Law and Family Arbitration we consider support of this initiative as a key tool to help people understand the options they have when experiencing family breakdown.
The objective of the week long series of events was designed to increase public awareness of the benefits of mediation along with collaborative law in order to resolve family disputes. This type of service is aimed at offering an alternative to attending formal court proceedings, reducing costs and most importantly, when children are involved, safeguarding their needs first and foremost.
A new survey has revealed that, the majority of Britons believe that putting the child’s interests first and avoiding conflict are the top factors to consider when going through a divorce.
78% of people said that putting children’s interests first would always be the consideration they put first or second in a divorce, with 53% claiming they would prioritise making a divorce as conflict-free as possible.
Despite these high survey outcomes, more than 81% of respondents believe that the children in cases end up being the main casualties of divorce, and 40% believe that divorces can never be without conflict. Surprisingly, in the current financial climate, money and assets were not seen as principally important. A mere 1% considered financial dominance over their partner would be the most important.*
When dealing with highly sensitive and emotional relationship breakdown cases we ensure that our family law solicitors promote a problem solving approach and lead the way in constructive methods of resolving family disputes. Finding a solution that is right for the whole family and is arrived at in the most amicable way possible is paramount to the work we do with you.
A website is available relating to further information on National Family Dispute Resolution.
