If you have children it has been proven that despite the fact that most parents believe that a separation or divorce will detrimentally hurt their children, this is not the case. In fact, it is not the separation and/or divorce that hurts the children, it is the contact that the children witness between their parents and the animousity of their parents after the separation that lead to emotional difficulties for the children.
The negotiations of custody and access, through solicitors, do not have to be acrimonious. Retaining a family law lawyer can allow you to canvass a number of possibilities surrounding the issues of custody and access that you may not even know exist.
If both parents are working in the best interests of the children you can negotiate a "win-win" for the children.
