Timothy Dutton CBE QC has advised and supported Resolution, a community of family justice professionals, in the creation of Resolution Together. The scheme will enable solicitors to jointly advise couples who are going through a separation, including in relation to childcare arrangements, in compliance with all relevant regulatory codes.
The innovative new model comes after the implementation of the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act which allowed couples, for the first time, to make joint applications to end a marriage collectively. As a result, Resolution has been able to develop a new approach to serve separating couples which reflects the change in legislation and the desire to reduce unnecessary conflict between individuals to the benefit of all those involved.
The launch of the scheme attracted over 500 attendees. More information about the scheme can be found here.
Resolution is grateful to the John Cornwell Foundation for its generous donation in funding counsel’s opinion on regulatory issues surrounding this work.
