Family courts: One fifth of divorces wrongly ending up in court - top judge 24/07/2022

Divorce is a relationship issue and not a legal issue in the vast majority of cases. Parenting issues especially should not end up in the courts, unless there is a strong possibility of illegal abduction, or the possibility of physical or psychological harm. Children see their parents fighting over residency and visitation rights will have long term adverse reactions. Children have the right to love and be loved by both parents. Keep divorce out of court.

Family courts: One fifth of divorces wrongly ending up in court - top judge The language in family courts is also too hostile and often makes things worse, a top judge says.

Sue Palmer-Conn aka The Divorce Doctor on LinkedIn: The Long-Lasting Effects of Having a Mentally Unwell Parent 24/07/2022

The marriages of mentally ill adults are more likely to break down than most due to the stress of living with someone with a mental illness. What happens to the children? Too often they end up staying with the mentally ill parent out of a sense of responsibility. These children then are being subjected to two sources of adverse childhood experience. Read the article below so see the long term effects as these children become adults themselves.

Did you know that there are over 100000 divorces a year in the UK? That means that 200000 people are experiencing one of the greatest periods of stress in their lives and we’re not even talking about cohabiting couples splitting up.
The average age of divorce is 45 for women and 47 for men. The average salary of people 45-55 is £33000. The physical, mental and psychological stress of divorce causes a 40% drop off in productivity for anything up to 5 years.
A rough calculation of the cost to the bottom line in businesses through divorce is £2.64 Billion but the effects are cumulative taking the cost to £13.2 Billion every year. This figure does not even take account of the fact that 5-10% of people going through divorce resign from their jobs due to lack of support. This means that in addition to the cost of divorce, there are the costs of recruitment and retraining, and we all know that at the moment recruitment is extremely difficult.
Despite all these facts, virtually no company has a Family Transition Policy or an internal divorce support mechanism.
The Principal of The Divorce Coaching Academy has co-authored, with an HR consultant, a Family Transition Policy. This policy is not going to cost you money, but save you a considerable amount. We can offer organisations individualised solutions to implement a Family Transitions Policy and transform employee assistance programmes to give 24 hour mental health support, access to professional divorce coaches, or offer training to internal support facilities. This will reduce stress, absenteeism, presenteeism and help employees feel supported and values.
