The ‘Family Solutions Group Report’, a report written by Helen Adam that looks into ways we can reframe support for families following parental separation, has been quoted in a recent BBC News article by the President of the Family Courts. The article recognises that too many divorce cases are going to court, which in turn puts a strain on resources, drags out already lengthy processes, and ultimately runs the risk of harming children during the divorce process.

As of April 6th, 2022, no-fault divorce law was passed in England and Wales. Juliette Shaw, one of our expert Divorce Consultants, recently wrote an article for Lawyer Monthly that evaluates whether this change is the catalyst needed to encourage mediators and lawyers to work more collaboratively in future divorce cases. Juliette identifies that: “We need to move away from the adversarial approach inherent in our legal system toward holistic support for the whole family” and instead offer a new, collaborative approach to divorce. Encouragingly, Juliette explains that: “Collaborative law and mediation are more popular than ever, offering the opportunity for clients to work together rather than against each other in an adversarial legal system with little control over the cost.”

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week (Monday 9 May to Sunday 15 May 2022), our very own Jane Kerr collaborated with Index Digital to discuss 10 reasons why, in light of the recent law change, using a mediator instead of a solicitor can reduce the stress of a divorce.

We all experience pain, but why is the idea that women are more emotional than men so persistent?
Our founding partner, @HelenAdam3, was invited to discuss this notion with iNews by considering her experiences with clients during the divorce process. She commented that it would be “impossible” to predict who will or will not become emotional during mediation based on gender and that it is a person’s upbringing and personality that has a far greater influence on their emotional response to divorce.
