This week (23rd to 28th November 2015) is Family Dispute Resolution week, a special event designed to encourage couples who are separating to do so in a non-confrontational, pragmatic way that puts the children at the forefront of their decisions.

Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation and other family problems, are concentrating their efforts this year on highlighting the importance of putting children’s needs first during parental separation.

Here at Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice, we always strive to ensure that every avenue is considered before an application to court is made. If parties can agree matters and come to a decision without having to get involved in court proceedings, this is usually better for everyone involved, especially the children.

Occasionally, it is necessary that the courts become involved, where urgent court applications need to be made to protect children or safeguard assets. Our expertise in judging when to negotiate and when to make a court application means that all our clients receive the best tailor-made advice that cannot be matched by “off the shelf” services.

As Wales’ first and best-rated specialist family law firm, we can help you with any family law issues, including:
