Emin Read Solicitors in the South East, with offices in Eastbourne and Battle, East Sussex, and Twickenham and Balham, are offering a free guide that contains advice and information to help families to put children first during a separation or divorce.

Claire Tennant, Laura Sherlock and Susie Parsons join with thousands of family professionals to launch the Parenting Through Separation Guide during Good Divorce Week, and annual initiative by the family justice organisation Resolution to raise awareness of how families can separate amicably.

Susie Parsons 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.  As a team, we hope that 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 free 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 Emin Read’s support during Good Divorce Week. Resolution members like them 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”.

Throughout Good Divorce Week, we’ll be happy to provide a copy of the Parenting Through Separation Guide to any parent who feels that this might be helpful to them and their family.

We offer all our clients a free, 30 minute, no obligation consultation with any member of our team, and this often affords parties the opportunity to have an honest chat about their situation, and explore options and support available to them. Alternatively, if you would prefer longer than 30 minutes, we offer a Consultation for 60 minutes, and confirm our advice in writing, without any further obligations or formality. Our fixed fee for a Consultation and written advice is £200 plus VAT.
