Divorce and Separation

There are many stages in a relationship, when our services can prove helpful.

If a relationship is in difficulties

Sometimes, even if a couple is having couples therapy to try to work things out together, couples may decide to separate in order to give each other space to see how they feel about each other and whether they want to stay together in the long-term.

Our service is different from counselling in that it can help you to look at the practicalities of this decision, such as, whether there should be a finite length of time for this separation and if so, how long the separation might last, where will you both stay etc.

Clearly, where there is a chance the relationship might be salvaged or recovered communication between you is of the utmost importance and we will work to ensure that constructive and honest communication is encouraged during this time.

If you have decided to divorce or permanently separate

At what is often a very painful time, we can help you to work together collaboratively to make the decisions you need to as efficiently and effectively as possible, ensuring that both people have the best possible chance to express what they need.

The main areas which are often brought to us are usually concerning arrangements for the children and financial agreements.

However, couples at this time will also often need to look at how they manage the initial separation. They might need to establish interim living arrangements and how you spend time with the children. You may wish to discuss the influence or contact arrangements of extended family members and how these can best be resolved if there is conflict. If a separation or divorce progresses and permanent arrangements need to be discussed and resolved we will help you to try to decide these fairly.

Following a separation or divorce

If arrangements have not worked out well over time, it might be beneficial for ex-partners to come to the table to see if issues can be resolved calmly and without acrimony.
