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.

Co-Founder of The Divorce Surgery, Samantha Woodham, writes today in Female First with some tips for young couples facing divorce. Social media can put undue pressure on young people to lead the ‘perfect’ life. But nobody’s life is perfect, and the healthiest response to an unhealthy relationship is to address what is wrong. If that means divorce, choose the divorce that is right for you, and leaves you most able to rebuild financially and emotionally on the other side.
Co-founders Harry and Samantha attended the MOJ last night to contribute their views on the Government’s no-fault divorce proposals. We support all proposals which reduce conflict for separating families, and the removal of the need to cast blame in the divorce process is a necessary first step. We look forward to receiving the Government’s response in due course.
