A Hayward’s Heath solicitors will be offering advice at one of the UK’s first divorce 
retreats.

‘The Best Way to Split RetreatTM’, is a pioneering event which takes place at the Ashdown Park Hotel from September 14-16.

It is designed to provide information and practical tools to help couples who are on the brink of divorce or separation to split up in the most amicable way.

Verity Eunson-Hickey, senior associate solicitor at Tisshaws, said: “People are scared that seeing a lawyer about their divorce means things are automatically going to turn nasty.

“A good family lawyer won’t force you down the path to court, but they will make sure you are fully informed about your rights and options and help guide and support you at a time when you need that the most.

“Many people are not even aware of some of the dispute resolution choices open to them.

“Having the information you need can save a lot of time, money and stress.”

The retreat is aimed not at couples, rather at individuals who will benefit from time away to gather information, learn practical tools and plan how to change their family structure.

Event organiser and renowned expert in the field, Suzy Miller, said: “Divorcing peacefully is about boundaries, clarity and focusing on the children’s needs rather than your own hurt.

“It’s tough to behave like a ‘grown up’ in divorce when your emotions are running high and you’re afraid of the financial implications or are worried about 
whether or not you’ll ever date again.”

The divorce strategist said separating can be a terrifying time and what can be missing during the process is a place to relax and consider your options.

The event will bring together a mix of professionals, as well as the experts in law, there will be finance representatives, parenting and wellbeing, along with support organisations such as Families Need Fathers.

There will be workshops covering mediation and other forms of dispute resolution.

Co-parenting, financial strategies, relationship skills, dealing with domestic abuse, holistic relaxation, nutrition and even crystal healing are all accessible at the retreat.

The retreat is aimed not at couples, rather at individuals who will benefit from time away to gather information, learn practical tools and plan how to change their family structure.
