How are you?
We offer free help and divorce advice so you are better informed and ready to make important decisions
with the right type of service you may need.
Our Editor, Christina Tait, has always stated that:
'Financial disputes can be a major stumbling block in the divorce process and could take longer than the divorce itself. This is the business side of divorce and it may be the most important financial event of your life. The choices and decisions that you make now may have an important influence on your financial well-being as well as your children's for many years to come.'

Review of Divorce Aid by Relationship Scotland,
a merger between Relate Scotland and Family Mediation Scotland
There’s something for everyone with a personal or professional
interest in separation and divorce at Divorce Aid. Part
no-nonsense repository of practical information, advice, news
and support for adults, children and teenagers, part new-agey
melange of quotes, pictures, audio links to soothing sounds and
advice from the Barefoot Doctor... this user-friendly, colourful
site has lots of links to many other websites and help-lines as
well as a large archive of news articles and features.
Scotland has its own section on the legal pages, with links
to CAB, Family Mediation, Stepfamily Scotland and other
agencies. A dedicated Mediation section explains the process,
albeit promoting specific private mediation companies.
The site has a team of regular contributors including lawyers, mediators, psychotherapists, psychologists, social
workers and a GP and includes reflections from people who have gone through separation and divorce.
In Divorce Aid’s own words: “From small beginnings in 1999, Divorce Aid now helps thousands of people across the
UK and internationally every week. Our motto is: ‘Whatever your situation and wherever you are, we hope to provide
divorce advice, support and information on any matter concerning you.’ Experts from the legal and therapy professions
enable us to provide this service by volunteering their time. The welfare of the child is paramount and we promote
mediation and counselling as well as good, professional legal advice. We also promote collaborative family law as a
new dignified approach to divorce.''
According to a leading search marketing company's report,
Divorce Aid is the most visible family law website in the UK.
We are now
including divorce IFAs, counsellors, mediators, life coaches and dating agencies.
