A pilot scheme has just been launched to help separating parents reach their own agreements.
Resolution, the national association of family lawyers, have just announced the launch of a new scheme, ‘Family Matters’. The pilot project, which will operate in Crewe, Newcastle upon Tyne and Oxford, will provide help and guidance for separating parents who do not qualify for legal aid.
Dedicated advisors, to be known as ‘Family Matters Guides’ will work with separating and separated parents in their local communities to advise them on ways they can reach constructive agreements together, focusing on the needs of children.
Family Matters Guides will also help parents access other local services they may not previously have been aware of. Guides will combine specialist knowledge of family law with sensitive and tailored information and support for separating parents to help achieve lasting outcomes in the wake of family breakdown.
