We Are Separating – How can we help?
Free Professional Advice For Male And Female Victims Of Domestic Abuse
We have launched a Green Phone initiative which is supported by legal professionals volunteering their time to have a FREE phone call with any mum or dad who is a victim of domestic abuse and would like some advice. Please look for the green phone symbol. You can find them HERE.
We also have a COVID19 Useful Links sections which lists organisations that are offering support and advice to families at this time.
The early days of separation can feel hazy, fast and yet, at the same time, painfully slow. The world as you kew it is changing, and you have to take your life and your children’s life into an unfamiliar future. No one stands at the alter expecting a divorce. The worlds of finance, law and mediation can feel intimidating. As with any major crises, now is the time to lean on the support of your friends and family. Look after your own needs as well as you possible can so that you can then look after those who are dependent on you. Remember that even a few days can make a bit difference, so keep you focus on the short-term. The long-term will then look after itself.
