Norfolk solicitor explains the benefits of a ‘good divorce’

Family solicitors at Norfolk-based law firm Clapham & Collinge LLP are supporting Resolution’s ‘Good Divorce Week 2020’, a national campaign that aims to promote practical and constructive ways for separating parents to put the needs of their children first.
