Yesterday Resolution told MP's about how they can support parents to put #childrenfirst
  • 25th Nov 2015

On 24 November, the second day of Family Dispute Resolution Week 2015, Resolution went to Parliament to tell MPs how they can support parents in their constituencies to put children first during divorce.

Hosted by Caroline Nokes MP, the speaker line up for the event included:

  • Bob Greig, founder of single father support organisation OnlyDads, who gave a powerful testimonial of the issues he sees in his work with separated families, including violence and the issues caused by lack of legal support.
  • Resolution chair Jo Edwards, who asked MPs and influencers to support the Resolution ethos and work with us to reduce the impact of divorce conflict on children by supporting out of court dispute resolution and introducing no fault divorce.
  • Family Justice Minister Caroline Dinenage, who spoke about her  commitment to promoting lower-conflict options for divorcing couples and the need to facilitate the inclusion of children in the divorce process.

Many MPs and key figures from the family justice sector attended the event, spoke to Resolution members and learned how they can access advice and support from Resolution for dealing with divorce issues in their constituencies.
