Issues Relating to Divorce...

Families come in diverse forms, types and sizes. There are also changes that can occur to families

Relationships may be fractured; contact may be difficult to establish; responsibilities may be radically changed.

There is no given template for the way relationships may be reconstructed after there has been a significant change in a family such as separation/dorce. We recognise that every family is unique and will have different needs at different times in the process of change and adapting and adjusting to change. We try to help families reflect on the opportunities as well as constraints of their new situation, as well as connect to their resources and strengths.

We recognise that divorce and separation can be challenging in all relationships, both heterosexual and same sex relationships.

Even when couples are no longer romantically intimate they may need to continue their relationship as co-parents, or in some other way such as the introduction of new partners, moving house or other change of circumstances. This can prove to be one of the most challenging aspects of family life post separation. We can help parents to think about the wider issues.

The extended family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins may also be affected. A family systemic approach recognises the many and varied needs across the family with respect to the end of the couple relationship.

Please note that we are not able to take part in court processes. We can help as the new arrangements begin to take shape.
