almost anything but family court

“(Almost) Anything But Family Court offers parents a detailed roadmap towards a positive goal. Oozing with common-sense and emotional insight, the available options and various routes are explained in non-legal language”

Sir Andrew McFarlane, President of the Family Law Division.




About The Book

We all know that the true cost of going through family court remains hidden. Many parents who have taken this route report a deterioration in their mental health, their bank balance, and anxious children. Almost all report a downturn in their relationship with their ex and their wider family. Such negative outcomes are not quick to resolve.

“This is a fabulous book, full of hope as well as practical guidance and useful information” Helen Adams, Senior Family Mediator

Now more than ever, as professionals, we owe it to clients to provide them with as much information as possible regarding their options for resolving their disputes outside the family courts. This book offers an easy to understand guide to the different routes that people can take.

We all need to do more to help reduce the serious negative impact separation and divorce can have on families.
