As the school holidays draw to an end, now comes the time to iron the school uniforms, finish off the homework and start to get back to the daily routine.
A new school terms brings nerves and excitement for your children but can be challenging for separated parents trying to co-parent from two different homes. It is understandable that ex-partners will not agree on every decision when it comes to their children; however it is important to ensure that the children’s best interests are always the top priority.
Our specialist Family Law Team meet with many divorcing or separated parents each year and understand how tricky co-parenting from two separate homes can be. Whether this is your child’s first year in school, or the start of a new term, here are some quick tips that might make ‘back to school’ a little easier:
If you are struggling to communicate with your ex-partner but need to resolve issues or make decisions about your children then Mediation could be a good option. Mediation is held around a table with the support from a natural family law expert who can guide the discussion and help you come to an agreed solution without raised voices or going off topic. If the relationship is difficult, you can opt for ‘Shuttle Mediation’ which is held in separate rooms with your Mediator going between to speak to you both individually.
Alternatively, if mediation is not appropriate for your situation or you fail to come to an agreement then you can apply to the courts where a family judge would decide the best option for your child.
Going through a separation or divorce when children are involved can be a distressing time. If you need legal assistance then please get in touch with our specialist Family Lawyers on 01256 844888.
