Family difficulties can easily spiral out of control if people don’t take appropriate and measured actions early on. Caught up in the emotion of relationship breakdowns, either between parents or between parents and children, it’s sometimes hard to see a clear pathway ahead.
Instinctive and emotional reactions to distressing events are rarely in the best long-term interests of all involved. The impact of what we say and what we do can reverberate for years and slow any healing process. Taking a pause to get advice and put priorities into perspective may not be the first thing you think of – but it always works out better in the long run.
Whatever your circumstances, it helps to talk to somebody understanding who isn’t going to judge. Somebody who isn’t personally involved can help clear the emotional fog and offer support and advice; so you can secure your rights and choose a course of action that you won’t later regret.
Beyond the legal aspects it’s essential to remember that family issues are first and foremost about people. And people going through relationship breakdowns need support as well as advice.
The best outcomes are often those that help people restore the balance in their lives as quickly as possible so they can look forward rather than back. When relationships break down, minimising the impact on any children is a clear priority.
While our Family Team has expertise in all aspects of family law, we focus first and foremost on providing a supportive environment throughout the process. The force of law may be the best way to achieve the outcome you are looking for, but often a less adversarial approach, such as mediation, may be more effective and better for all involved.
You’ll find us understanding, easy to talk to and completely non-judgemental. If you are experiencing relationship issues don’t bottle them up until you lose control. We can help you find a resolution that protects your rights and helps you to move forward. Contact the team here.
