Lawyer contributes to book for parents

By Gill Harris on 6 February, 2019


A lawyer at a law firm headquartered in Bath has contributed to a new book which aims to help separating parents.

101 Questions Answered About Separating with Children was printed by Bath Publishing following an idea from social enterprises OnlyMums and OnlyDads.

The book includes contributions from a number of expert family solicitors, barristers, mediators and other professionals. It covers the legal landscape, how to cope with the psychological impact of separation, what it means for children involved, and where parents can get further help and support.

The informative book contains expert advice from Senior Associate Sarah Wasaya, a member of Stone King’s Family & Mediation Team.

She said: “I was delighted to contribute to this book and think parents will find it provides some much-needed clarity at a difficult time.”

The book has three key themes to help parents resolve issues; improving relationship and communication skills, determining what is best for children and understanding legal processes.

Rebecca Giraud, director of OnlyMums, said, “101 Questions Answered aims to clearly explain family law processes, answering the most common questions that separating parents ask with a degree of authority. We are delighted to have had Stone King share their expertise in this book.”

The President of the Family Division, the Rt Hon Sir Andrew McFarlane, has written the book’s foreword and said: “Irrespective of the current pressing problem that may have caused a parent to pick this book up, any reader would be well advised to invest the time in reading it from cover to cover, thereby gaining a real ‘feel’ for the approach of family law professionals and the courts in general to these important and difficult problems.”

Sarah Wasaya specialises in all aspects of family law with particular expertise in international and complex financial matters and international cross-border children disputes.

She is a member of the OnlyMums and OnlyDads Family Law Panel and she is accredited by Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers, as a Specialist Family Lawyer.

101 Questions Answered About Separating with Children costs £23.99 from Bath Publishing.
