Yorkshire Lawyers Work Together to Keep Divorcing Couples out of Court


A group of family lawyers, divorce coaches, financial advisers and other professionals in West and South Yorkshire have come together to form the Dovetail Divorce Group. The aim of the group is to keep divorce proceedings amicable and out of court. To celebrate their re-launch in Leeds they are releasing doves in millennium square at the beginning of Dispute Resolution week 23rd November.

Lawyers Release the Doves

The Dovetail Divorce Group is comprised of collaborative lawyers, mediators, arbitrators, financial advisers, relationship coaches and counsellors committed to working as a team to support couples to part amicably and come to an agreement about dividing their assets and sharing the care of their children without involving the courts.

The group, which already covers Leeds, Sheffield, Wakefield, Bradford, Barnsley, Doncaster and Harrogate are expanding rapidly. Jane Auty Head of Family Services at Simpson Millar Leeds said ‘The aim is to have Dovetail teams in major towns throughout Yorkshire. This will give separating couples a good choice of professionals who will work as a team to help them reach the best outcome for the whole family. It will help them keep control rather than handing decisions to the courts.'

'When couples are not supported to reach a fair settlement, emotions can rise and can end in a bitter and costly fight where nobody really wins. The right advice, such as how to fairly divide the assets, so that everyone’s priorities are considered can save a fortune in the long run' said Robert Creswell IFA .’

Clare Walters, Divorce coach said 'It is important to keep things calm and respectful and focus on the future. Especially when children are involved it is vital to consider what is in their best interests'.

More information can be found on their brand new website www.dovetaildivorce.com which will go live on 23rd November. It explains the various ways that you can reach a divorce settlement without the costly process of going to court and leaving the decisions to a judge. It also gives you contact details of the Dovetail professionals in your area.
