About The Book
Every parent struggles at some point; we all know there is no parenting rule-book and when parents separate it gets much harder. ‘101 Questions Answered About Separating With Children’ is full of answers to questions we have received over the last 10 years. It answers, in plain English, the questions we get asked most often and range from the immediate and practical, such as ‘Can I change the locks?’, through to the strictly legal. It has extensive chapters on parental alienation, domestic abuse and the court process. For Litigants in Person there is valuable guidance on creating and preparing a bundle.
The questions are answered by a wide range of experienced professionals including family lawyers, mediators, psychologists, GP’s, Judges and Headteachers. The book also contains tips and reflections from parents and children and support and guidance on COVID and the family courts. Alongside the legal help the book has insights on how to handle the psychological impact of separation, what it means for the children involved and where parents can turn to for further help.
The book will help parents understand the issues so that they can make better informed decisions and make the most of any time (and money) spent on legal advice. More importantly, it gives them guidance and reassurance on often difficult and urgent issues leaving them more time to concentrate on pulling through what is a stressful, bruising period in their, and their children’s lives.
This 2nd edition has been fully updated and includes coverage of the many issues that have arisen out of the coronavirus pandemic.
