Ward Gethin Archer Solicitors offer free advice to families in support of Good Divorce Week
Family law firm Ward Gethin Archer Solicitors is aiming to help families facing the challenges of separation by offering free advice sessions to show support for Good Divorce Week.
Good Divorce Week, which runs from November 30 to December 4, is an annual campaign that aims to promote practical and constructive ways for separating parents to put the needs of their children first.
Organised by Resolution, a community of more than 6,500 family justice professionals, this year the campaign focuses around the benefits of early legal advice, as the organisation prepares to relaunch its public facing Code of Practice.
Resolution members believe the process of separating, sorting out finances and arranging childcare should be done in a way that minimises conflict and keeps the best interests of any children involved at the heart of proceedings.
By seeking early professional advice, couples have the benefit of considering a range of options and making a decision that is most suitable to them.
To help in promoting the benefits of early legal advice, during Good Divorce Week Ward Gethin Archer Solicitors will be offering 30-minute free advice sessions to those families who need it at all of their offices across Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. In West Norfolk, the firm has offices in Lynn, Downham, Swaffham and Heacham.
Director and family law solicitor Sarah Fairbrother said: “It’s very difficult for parents when they make that tough decision to separate, and often there is a significant impact upon children.
"That’s why I am delighted to support Good Divorce Week to promote a constructive approach to this often emotionally charged matter.
“This is an opportunity for couples to fully understand all of their rights and the options open to them and separate in the most harmonious way possible.
“Far too many families have little-to-no access to professional legal advice when it comes to divorce. The free advice we are offering will give separating couples the confidence and knowledge to make the best decisions for them and their family with minimal conflict.”
Anyone who is interested in having a free 30-minute advice session, should call Ward Gethin Archer on 01553 660033 and ask to speak with a member of the Family department.
