Intimate relationships change over the years. It may be easy to think that ending a difficult long-term partnership will solve all your problems, however separation and divorce can bring up a number of challenges and is rarely a straightforward process or experience emotionally, especially if there are children and teenagers involved. Is it possible to do separation with co-operation? What happens for kids when their parents separate? This book explores the common causes of relationship breakdown, and explains the practical and legal processes of divorce, including going to court and dividing property and finances. It also offers advice on successfully establishing and maintaining positive parenting arrangements after separation.
