Parenting through separation – a new guide for separating parents

Boardman, Hawkins & Osborne LLP

If you are a parent thinking about divorce or separation, one of your biggest worries is likely to be about your children: where they will live, and how they will continue to have a meaningful relationship with both parents.

Resolution have recently drafted a helpful leaflet to guide you through this, and to offer information, support, and tips.

BH&O have decided to make this available through our website.

We can also provide you with a printed version if you would find this helpful. Just ask your lawyer for a copy.

The guide include such useful topics as:

  • The end of the relationship – what does it feel like and what will happen now?
  • What should my first steps be now that I have separated from my partner?
  • Your new co-parenting role
  • Communication tips
  • How important is the voice of the child?
  • Extended Family
  • What are the types of dispute that might arise between separating parents?
  • The future and changes that might happen along the way
  • How could things look if we get this right?
  • We can’t agree and need help – what should we do?
  • What is the legal position?
  • A Jargon Buster
  • What do I do if I have been in an abusive relationship?
  • What resources can my child(ren) and I refer to?
