Resolution’s Good Divorce Week 2020


Resolution’s annual initiative ‘Good Divorce Week’ runs from Friday 30 November to Wednesday 4 December and, this year, their Code of Practice is at the heart of the campaign.

Who is Resolution?Resolution is an organisation of lawyers and other family justice professionals who are committed to following a non-confrontational and constructive approach to resolving family issues. The membership organisation for professionals that work with separating families has over 6,500 members and over 1,200 accredited specialists.

Code of Practice

All members commit to the Code of Practice when they join. It promotes a constructive approach to family issues and considers the needs of the whole family, in particular the best interests of children. This means they agree to the following:

Resolution members will:

  • Reduce or manage any conflict and confrontation; for example, by not using inflammatory language.
  • Support and encourage families to put the best interests of any children first.
  • Act with honesty, integrity, and objectivity.
  • Help clients understand and manage the potential long-term financial and emotional consequences of decisions.
  • Listen to and treat everyone with respect and without judgment.
  • Use my experience and knowledge to guide clients through the options available to them.
  • Continually develop my knowledge and skills.
  • Use the Resolution Guides to Good Practice in my day-to-day work.

At Pinney Talfourd we are proud to be part of the Resolution organisation. All our family team are members of Resolution, and four are accredited specialists.

This year, Resolution has asked all its members to commit to providing 30 minutes of free legal or professional advice to those who need it during the Good Divorce Week. We are pleased to confirm that we offer this service all year round. If you wish to discuss your matter with us, we are happy to do an initial 30-minute discussion free of charge.
