Breaking up is never easy Citizen Advice Bureau

Citizens Advice Bureau gives advice and information and assist in finding the right help to support individuals, couples and families following relationship breakdown.

Family problems can be financially and legally complex as well as emotionally charged. People need specialist services beyond information and advice, such as legal help, mediation, relationship counselling or parenting support. Consequently the bureau often needs to make referrals to other services.

we will check reports that looks at family breakdown issues in context of the Government's Family Justice Review and reforms to family legal aid.

"By analysing evidence from issues presented to the bureau, the report finds that there is a growing advice gap in relation to family problems. The supply of information and advice to separating couples, especially from legal aid, is declining. Whilst mediation and other services can offer alternatives to legal aid, the report illustrates how legal advice and representation, money advice and good quality general advice on family issues are essential to mitigate the worst effects of family breakdown"
