Separation hits children hard

Have your say

Expert family lawyers from Sheffield say separated parents squabbling over contact with their children for the Christmas holidays must try to resolve their disputes amicably.

Martin Loxley, an expert family lawyer at Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office at Millsands, in the city centre, said: “Christmas can be a very difficult time for families that are separated or divorced, and this can take a huge toll on the children involved.

“It is therefore crucial any potential disputes are sorted out as soon as possible.”
