We are delighted to announce the publication of “Towards the Light: A Way Through Divorce and Separation” by Family Law in Partnership directors James Pirrie and Elizabeth Fletcher.

Towards the Light set outs, in an accessible format, what we as family lawyers would most like to tell clients if they had the time and the headspace to take it all in. It aims to answer the question: “When I have got to the end of the divorce and separation process, what are likely to be the key things that I wish I’d known at the beginning?”

Focus is given to seven particular aspects of relationship breakdown:

  • You and the Relationship
  • Emergencies
  • Children and the Wider Family
  • Finances
  • Divorce & Separation
  • Process Choice & Costs
  • Circumstances Specific to Your Relationship

Feedback on Towards the Light includes:

“Towards the Light is excellent – compassionate and sensitive”

“The book details some perhaps unexpected and uncomfortable truths eg. the Court does not treat the person being left any differently from the one who is leaving, however unfair that may seem”

“It covers the whole process from thinking about doing it (separating) to getting beyond it once the formalities are over”

“Towards the Light is succinct enough to feel manageable but detailed enough to give plenty of information”

Towards the Light has been written by directors James Pirrie and Elizabeth Fletcher of Family Law in Partnership.

James has practised family law exclusively for over 25 years and is a director of Family Law in Partnership. The leading legal directories have ranked James as a pre-eminent family lawyer for many years, with the Legal 500 UK also naming him as a leading mediator. James was given Resolution’s John Cornwell Award in 2014 which recognises lawyers who have gone above and beyond the norm in their work to support separating families.
