You may think that a solicitors job is just ensuring that the legal stuff is dealt with. We think a solicitors job is ensuring that the legal stuff is dealt with in the best way for the family, especially the children.

You might think it is odd that your solicitor is encouraging you to avoid going to court! But we know that, if you could settle your disputes without a big court argument, maintaining respect for each other and making things easier for the children to deal with, you would. We know you'd prefer to say that you kept your dignity even during the difficult times. You want your children to feel they can invite both their parents to their weddings.
