If you have visited this website in the past, you may have noticed that it has a brand new look. You may be wondering what’s changed and why.

Collaborative family law has been in the UK for several years and trained practitioners now have experience of successful cases to sit alongside their general enthusiasm for collaborative divorce. With so much to say, we wanted a website that will allow members to share our enthusiasm with the public. So the key difference with this website to the previous one is that it is simple to add fresh content.

With the growing use of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, we’re making the new articles easy to share with your friends and professional connections by including a “Share” button at the foot of each News article (see below). If you like what you’ve read and want others to know about it, just click the Share button which takes you to the Addthis website where you can easily promote the story via a wide range of social media sites.

The website is also making it easy for you to know whenever we have added News. You can follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook or Subscribe to Posts via the RSS button on the Collaborative Divorce News page.

By raising the profile of collaborative divorce as an option for divorcing couples, more people will ask about it and seek out a collaboratively trained lawyer at the start of their divorce. A website with fresh and regular content that has articles promoted by many people across social media sites should help to make the website found by more people. This includes people who may not know to search with the term “collaborative” but might use relevant terms instead like “protect my children during and after divorce”, “successful co-parenting after my divorce” and “protecting my finances in divorce” and so on.

This website also gives us easy access to make changes. We would like to have a small number of collaborative practitioners across the region who are comfortable with technology to volunteer to help with adding and amending content. This would include taking responsibility for the upkeep of the records of members in your region as people join the group or change jobs. If you would like to help, please let us know by emailing Miles Hendy at miles@fraserheath.co.uk.

With members now grouped into either a large town or county, we believe that the new website will make it easier for members of the public to find a local collaborative practitioner. If you are a member of Collaborative Family Lawyers, please check your details and if there are any changes to be made, please complete the Member Details form.

We trust that you like the new website and we hope that you will help to promote collaborative family law in your online social networks.
