"I would like to let you know that I found your website so invaluable in my divorce process. I am having to represent myself due to lack of finances and I know for a fact I wouldn't have been able to do it had it not been for your fantastic website. I would recommend it to anyone who find themselves in a similar situation to me." Madeleine

Did you know this week was Family Dispute Resolution Week?

Resolution, the national organisation for family lawyers, is this week running Family Dispute Resolution Week.

It's part of a push to emphasise alternatives to the court process.  They estimate that 115,000 people could save 'money and stress during relationship break ups' if they knew more the alternatives to court. (Such as Intelligent Divorce!)

The campaign runs until Friday, and in a press release, Resolution reports that a survey of 4,000 adults undertaken on their behalf found that:

  • 51% said they would consider trying a non-court-based solution instead of going court if they were to divorce in the future
  • 24% think that non-court based methods of divorce 'protect the rights of both parties'.
  • 52% said they think that non-court based methods of divorce and separation 'are better for the wellbeing of couples'.
  • 50% of British adults say that 'non-court based methods of divorce and separation are better for the wellbeing of children'.

These findings 'uncover a worrying lack of awareness about the options available to couples who are going through break-ups' according to Resolution Chair Liz Edwards.

We broadly agree, and think they should all consider Intelligent Divorce…..
