This week, 25 - 29 November 2013 is Dispute Resolution Week aimed at raising awareness of alternative ways of dealing with separation and relationship breakdown.
As part of this week, Resolution, the body representing over 6000 family law professionals in England, including member company, Huddersfield based, Ramsdens Solicitors, have carried out a survey of 4000 adults which looks at their general views of the Christmas period.
The results are quite surprising, 50% of divorced women found Christmas ‘very stressful’ which is 3% more than the general British public. 40% of divorced people just want the period to be over and 40% of divorced or separated couple in their 20’s and 30’s feel their most lonely at Christmas.
With these statistics in mind it is no real surprise that Christmas can lead to a huge amount of relationship breakdowns and separations.
Ramsdens Solicitors could help you deal with issues such as contact with your children, practicalities for Christmas, finances and general advice and assistance on the relationship breakdown.
They will do this in a non-confrontational and judgmental way and in the hope that it can cause as little stress for you as possible. Speaking to a solicitor does not have to be as adversarial as you think. They offer mediation and collaborative law where you are in the driving seat with our assistance.
This type of dispute resolution is being highlighted this week as part of Dispute Resolution Week and you can find out more through the Resolution website.
