Maguire Family Law are delighted to be supporting OnlyMums & OnlyDads with their new book 101 Questions Answered About Separating with Children
Maguire Family Law are delighted to have contributed to their new book ‘101 Questions Answered About Separating with Children’. The book aims to help separating parents keep their children’s best interests first. Maguire Family Law are a long-term supporter of the social enterprise OnlyMums & OnlyDads and are a member of their Family Law Panel.
The book, published with support and collaboration of Bath Publishing, has been written by a number of expert family solicitors, barristers, mediators and other professionals. It covers the legal landscape, how to cope with the psychological impact of separation, what it means for children involved, and where parents can turn for further help and support.
Partner at Maguire Family Law, Jennifer Curtis comment “James Maguire and I are pleased that as individuals and as a firm we have been able to give something back, by offering guidance to those who have taken the difficult decision to separate. We hope that the information within the book will assist and reassure those going through a separation; and give them confidence to seek legal advice which compliments their own efforts to resolve matters directly with their former partner.”
101 Questions Answered develops three key themes which help parents resolve issues:
- Improving relationship and communication skills with their ex-partner
- Determining what is genuinely best for the children (often requiring external support)
- Understanding the processes and mechanics of the law, family courts and different pathways to resolving issues, such as mediation, collaborative law and other approaches.
Director of OnlyMums, Rebecca Giraud continued, “101 Questions Answered aims to clearly explain family law processes, answering the most common questions that separating parents have with a degree of authority. Throughout the book, we also made sure to emphasise how parents can save money when using professional advisers. We are delighted to have had James and Jennifer share their expertise in this book.”
In his foreword to the book, President of the Family Division The Rt Hon Sir Andrew McFarlane said:
“Irrespective of the current pressing problem that may have caused a parent to pick this book up, any reader would be well advised to invest the time in reading it from cover to cover, thereby gaining a real ‘feel’ for the approach of family law professionals and the courts in general to these important and difficult problems.”
