Charity Calls for Law Change to Stop Kids Getting Caught up in Divorce Courts


“Parents often lose focus on their children as they battle with their ex-partner to determine who gets what, and who the children are going to live with. During a crisis or emotional meltdown it’s not realistic to expect parents to research all their options.

Making it a requirement to consider mediation before going to court is the way forward. Research shows that mediation is quicker, less costly and more effective than court action in helping divorcing and separating couples.

Mediation helps parents make a decision to work together in the best interests of their children. We need to act now to help parents and families find their own solutions."

These are the words of Stuart Valentine, chief executive of Relationships Scotland, advocating to make it a legal requirement that divorcing parents must consider mediation to prevent thousands of kids being stuck in the middle of court action.
