What is Resolution in the context of Family Law?
It is a community of 6,500 family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way.
This is the official description of Resolution and all quality family lawyers in England and Wales will belong to this national organisation.
What does it do for you, the potential user of legal services if you are having to deal with the breakdown of a relationship and/or problems with parental rights to your children?
If you consult a family solicitor who is a member of Resolution, you should be confident that your case will be dealt with considering the needs of the whole family, in particular the best interests of the children if relevant, and most of all, promoting a non-conflictual approach to your case which, if maintained throughout, is guaranteed to produce a more satisfactory final outcome.
An improved Code of Practice was launched in the recent Good Divorce Week during which 150 Resolution members met with MPs at Westminster to promote the campaign for no fault divorce and rights for cohabiting couples – more of that later.
