Ilkley law firm offers free advice sessions to mark Good Divorce Week


LCF Law's Rachel Spencer Robb

LCF Law in Ilkley is showing its support for Good Divorce Week 2020, by offering free advice sessions to families.


An annual campaign, Good Divorce Week is organised by Resolution, a community of more than 6,500 family justice professionals, and it is taking place from Monday 30th November to Friday 4th December.


Good Divorce Week promotes practical and constructive ways for separating parents to put the needs of their children first. This year the campaign focuses on the benefits of getting early legal advice, as the organisation prepares to re-launch its public facing Code of Practice.


Resolution members believe the process of separating, sorting out finances and arranging childcare should be done in a way that minimises conflict and keeps the best interests of children at the heart of proceedings.


To help promote the benefits of early legal advice during Good Divorce Week, lawyers, mediators and financial advisors across the country will be offering 30-minute free advice sessions to those families who need it.


Partner and head of LCF Law’s family law team, Rachel Spencer Robb, who is a Resolution Accredited specialist family lawyer, said: “By seeking early professional advice, couples have the benefit of considering a range of options and making a decision that is most suitable to them.


“We don’t ever limit our free session to 30 minutes, as we understand that couples often have many difficult issues to work through, especially as there is likely to be a significant impact upon the children.


“Our team has always supported taking a constructive approach to the often emotionally charged matter of separation and divorce. We talk our clients through the process clearly and make sure that they fully understand all their rights and the options open to them, so that we can help them to separate in the most harmonious way possible.


“Far too many families have little-to-no access to professional legal advice when it comes to divorce. The free advice we are offering will give separating couples the confidence and knowledge to make the best decisions for them and their family with minimal conflict.”


LCF Law’s family law team is recommended in industry bible, Legal 500. Rachel and the experienced family law team act for clients across the UK offering alternatives to court proceedings including mediation, alongside fixed fees and a flexible approach to client contact.
