A third of separating couples now end up in court over their children

The Nuffield Foundation report highlights that a third of separating families now end up in Court over their children, not a tenth as previously believed. A quarter of the cases in Court have no serious safeguarding issues. The report finds that the Court process itself risks escalating conflict to a point where it is harmful. This is now viewed as a public health issue.

Early intervention is critical- by the time a couple is in Court it’s far too late. We are determined to offer couples a better way to reach fair outcomes together and without exacerbating conflict for their families.

Avoiding unnecessary court battles has far-reaching benefits for splitting couples

Christopher Hames QC writes in The Times urging family lawyers to promote more alternatives to adversarial litigation, and endorsing The Divorce Surgery’s approach. We are fortunate at The Divorce Surgery to be able to offer clients fixed fee expertise at the highest levels, include silks such as Mr Hames QC.
