Marriage breakdown? It's Good Divorce Week

Good divorce week 29th November to 3rd December 2023

Resolution is a group of family lawyers who aim to approach family law disputes in a conciliatory manner. They aim to resolve issues constructively and swiftly.

Good Divorce Week runs from November 29 to December 3.

A marriage breakdown impacts the two parties involved but it also has a huge impact upon the children of the marriage.


Resolution emphasises the importance of a ‘child-focused’ approach following a marriage breakdown.  This is particularly relevant now, in light of the pressures faced by many families as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns.

‘Parenting Through Separation’ is a guide prepared by Resolution to assist parents during a separation. It can be found here:

Practical advice

At Marsden Rawsthorn, our lawyers understand how stressful a separation can be.

We offer practical, expert advice to assist in resolving matters amicably and swiftly.

Our team takes into account the impact of the separation upon the children involved.  

Instructing a lawyer from the outset can assist in ensuring matters are dealt with correctly and efficiently, therefore minimising stress on the parties.

As a result, the impact on any children will be minimal.

There are several  methods that can be utilised to resolve separation issues. These include mediation, negotiations between solicitors and round table meetings.

No fault divorce

‘No fault divorce’ becomes law in April 2022. This much anticipated and welcomed change should also assist in reducing hostility between parties following a marriage breakdown.

Of course, despite best efforts, it is not always possible to adopt a conciliatory approach following a marriage breakdown. 

It may be that court proceedings will be required to assist.
