Putting your children first


Recent studies have shown that 82% of children would rather their parents separate than stay together for their sakes.  However, making sure that your child’s emotional welfare is protected during a separation is not always easy.


Children and teenagers can so very easily be caught in the middle of a separation and a lot of the time this happens unintentionally. Parents may think they are looking out for their children but all too often they are pulled into the process.


Separating is never easy and keeping emotions in check in front of children is a constant struggle for parents. Making sure you get the right support therefore is imperative, not only for your own wellbeing, but also for the wellbeing of your children.


At asb law, we are alive to the sensitivities arising from divorce and separation, including matters relating to the welfare of children.


Protecting your child’s welfare will be the main focus of the advice and support we provide; in most cases this can be achieved by adopting a resolution friendly approach but, from time to time, litigation is the only

avenue available. In either eventuality, asb law works alongside a number of relationship professionals and can offer the full support you require.
