This week is Good Divorce Week.

This is a week about seeking the best solutions to what can be the most difficult period that clients can go through. Resolution is a National Organisation of Family Lawyers keen to promote resolution of family separation without conflict. We are proud to be members of Resolution a large community of family justice professionals who all work with families and individuals to resolve issues in the most constructive way.

Resolution membership is about the approach we take to our work. This means that as a Resolution member, we will also seek to reduce or manage any conflict or confrontation, support and encourage families and but the best interests of any children first and to always act with honesty, integrity and objectivity.

"I know from my 29 years experience working as a family lawyer professional that clients reach the best outcomes when they are helped to understand and manage the potential long term financial and emotional consequences of their decisions. This is why I use my experience and knowledge to guide clients through the options available to them," advises the Head of the Family Team, Andrew Stynes.

As a Resolution member, we have signed up to a code of practice that will demonstrate to clients the approach we will always take. This code of practice promotes a constructive approach to family issues and considers the needs of the whole family, in particular the best interests of children.

Should you decide to work with me, this means:

  • Listening to you, being honest with you and treating you with respect
  • Explaining all the options and giving you confidence to make the right decisions for yourself
  • Helping you to focus on what is important to you and any children in the long term
  • Helping you to balance financial and emotional costs with what you want to achieve
  • Working with others to find the right approach with best solutions for you
  • Managing stress in what can be an extremely stressful situation

Because we are signed up to the Resolution code of practice, we work with a network of other like-minded professionals including mediators, financial planners and family consultants, to make sure we are helping our clients with the right approach for them.

Our Family Team, based in Christchurch, also cover Bournemouth, Poole and the New Forest. If you have any questions, you only have to ask us at Frettens. Please call 01202 499255 and Andy or his team, will be happy to chat about your situation.
