About the book

This book answers some of the questions being asked of OnlyMums & Dads, a national not-for-profit support and signposting service for parents going through divorce and separation. Each question has been answered by an expert in their field.

Separating with children is a challenging enough process. Add a global pandemic into the mix and the realities of day-to-day life as a parent trying to prioritise your children’s needs become an intimidating prospect.

The restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic have made an already stressful process even more so and as a result has put families who are trying to do what’s best for their children under enormous pressure.

This book covers many of the questions they are being asked on a daily basis. There is information on family courts, how they are functioning and what happens to existing court orders at a time of social distancing and other restrictions. Crucially, there is a chapter on domestic abuse with input from legal experts and the police and information on where to go for support.

The book also includes a useful glossary of legal terms and a comprehensive list of support organisations with links on how to contact them.

"It is both remarkable, and entirely in keeping with their organisational goals, that in such a short space of time OnlyMums & Dads have rallied their Resolution family law panel and others to provide sound, cogent and considered advice to help parents as they are now doing in this Covid-19 specific edition. I do not doubt that there will be more to feed upon for parents within these pages."
From the foreword by Margaret Heathcote, Chair of Resolution.
