Resolution What is it ?

Posted on 6 Mar 2016, in OMM News

With the festive season approaching, many of us will be thinking about our relationships, whether that be with our spouses, partners or children. Some of you may be thinking about ending a relationship, or if you are already separated, thinking about your contact arrangements with your children or even their residence.


When you are considering taking legal advice there are many factors that you should consider and any accreditation or memberships that your legal advisor has may be important.

Resolution is perhaps not an organisation that many of us have heard of, but it is in fact the UK’s largest organisation of family lawyers with approximately 6,000 members. It believes that family law disputes should be dealt with in a constructive way, designed to preserve people’s dignity and to encourage agreements.

Resolution is the recognised voice of family law and has been influential in impacting many Government policies. All members must abide by its Code of Practice and to be accepted must demonstrate, by answering a series of questions their commitment to the Code.

With respect to the Code itself, the member must avoid the use of inflammatory language, conduct matters in a constructive and non-confrontational way and encourage clients to put the best interests of any children first.

Why is this important? You may wish to keep matters amicable particularly where children are involved. In any financial negotiations, the way in which a matter is conducted can have a direct impact upon costs; inflammatory language tends to mean that it can sometimes take longer to reach an agreement, which in turn can sometimes mean higher legal costs.

It is of course still possible for your legal advisor to act in a firm fashion whilst abiding by the Code and at the end of the day all family lawyers will work to same set of rules when it comes to working out a division of finances, contact arrangements for any children or setting up a Pre-Nuptial Agreement.
