Constructive co-parenting

Monday 29 November 2021 marks the first day of Resolution’s “Good Divorce Week 2021”. Resolution is a national association comprised of family justice professionals who work closely with families and individuals to help provide practicable solutions to the issues arising from divorce or separation. The Association has implemented “Good Divorce Week” in order to raise awareness of the issues faced in the process of divorce and separation with the primary focus on children and how to minimise conflict during this process. Resolution have provided a free comprehensive guide to assist parents which can be easily accessed here

What is Co-Parenting?

Co-parenting is a term commonly used in the event of a divorce or separation between two or more parties, associated with the sharing of parental responsibilities. For individuals who have just separated or are in the process of separating, the idea of co-parenting can be daunting. On the face of it, individuals may be particularly concerned with how to ‘co-parent’ and whether or not there is a right or wrong way of doing this. Generally speaking, there is no universal approach, as everybody’s situations are unique to each individual and each family, but there are tips on working out how to do this amicably.

Our Family Law Experts, Rachel Spencer Robb and Harjit Rait, who are both experienced Partners and also long-standing members of Resolution.
