The way in which parents adapt to living apart and managing communication will impact their child(ren)’s experience of the family separation. Many parents find this challenging, especially in the immediate aftermath of separation. We promote child welfare by offering two forms of support specifically aimed at parents within the fixed fee process.
First, parents are invited to attend separate 90-minute confidential meetings with an accredited therapist. These optional ‘Wellbeing’ meetings give both parents the chance to talk with an expert about how they are coping and how they are managing communication with the other parent.
Secondly, we invite each parent to attend an optional online workshop for separating parents. Attendance of this type of workshop is mandatory in many other jurisdictions when parents separate, but not yet here in the UK. Many parents have spoken of how helpful it is to understand the specific needs of children from parents who live apart.
All members of The Wells Group and our partners are committed to ensuring the best outcomes for children when parents separate.
I would like to thank you for the time you have spent in achieving in 4 hours, what we never achieved in 4 months. I think it is by far a much better process than solicitors and court.
I honestly feel that we now have a good chance of proceeding in an amicable way that hopefully in time will become a friendship with the children at its core. I do not think we would have achieved this through solicitors, and feel huge gratitude for your patience and gentleness.
It’s so much better to go through this process together in a calm and neutral setting, rather than being defensive at home or seeing a solicitor individually. You’ve been a great adviser on a tricky topic and the meetings were really productive.
Throughout this whole horrible process we have both felt that the system is designed to leave us hating each other and to have had your support in helping us get to this point has meant a great deal, so thank you for your support of us both and for reflecting everything so well.
Thank you for all you have done to make a very sad and painful process somewhat less painful!
Thanks for all your help. We are talking a lot more and generally getting on much better, we even stood next to each other at rugby AND are going to parents’ evening together!
You did more in 4 hours than our lawyers had done in 1 year. For that I am very grateful.
