Resolution, the national organisation that represents family lawyers who work to ensure family cases are dealt with in an amicable way as possible, supports Government's announcement about the Voice of the Child.
The aim is to help separating parents put their child's needs first, but more detail is needed about how this would work in practice.
Resolution's Parenting Charter (mentioned in the article) was launched on Monday and can be found here: http://www.resolution.org.uk/site_content_files/files/resolution_parenting_charter.pdf
The Government’s announcement today regarding the Voice of the Child aims to make it easier for children to have their say during family disputes – but family law organisation Resolution says this needs to be part of a wider move to put children’s needs first during divorce and separation. The organisation, which represents family practitioners who work to reduce conflict during divorce, has developed a Parenting Charter which sets out what children should expect from their parents during and after their divorce, which will be formally launched on Monday, 23 February.
