We’ll Not See You in Court – What’s The Alternative?

by Published on

Going through separation affects not only adults and children but it can also have an impact on wider family, friends and colleagues.

Separation doesn’t need to involve going to court and most separating couples manage to avoid this. There are choices available. Dispute Resolution Week takes place from 24th to 28th November 2014 and is being promoted by Resolution, an organisation of professionals working with separating couples.

Separation is always difficult but Resolution members try to resolve problems in a constructive way that leads to a more satisfactory and lasting outcome for the couple and their families.

Perhaps more than ever, with the pressures on an already stretched court service, separating couples should consider alternatives.

The collaborative process lets separating couples work through the issues which need to be resolved, with them each having a specially trained Collaborative Lawyer there to support them during each meeting. The Collaborative Process is a private way of solving problems without having to go to court.

It is important that awareness of alternatives is raised so that separating couples and their families know that there is a better way.
