We want people to know that there is #ABetterWay to separate and early professional advice is paramount – our family team can help you.

  • New poll reveals 41% of those divorced within the last 5 years have suffered multiple episodes of poor mental health, compared to 29% among those who got divorced more than 5 years ago
  • Poll also shows ‘DIY divorces’ on the rise
  • Majority of divorcees surveyed want to see early professional advice for separating couples (63%)
