Holmfirth based Family Law Solicitor, Carol-Anne Baker of Bridge Law is delighted to have contributed to 101 Questions Answered About Separating with Children, a new book to help separating parents keep their children’s best interests first.

The book, published with support and collaboration of Bath Publishing, has been written by 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 turn for further help and support.
Carol-Anne says “This book provides a wealth of useful information given by a variety of people who are highly experienced in family law matters. It is written in a user-friendly way answering questions which commonly arise and would be extremely useful for anyone going through or still dealing with issues following separation. Any organisations offering information and support in these circumstances would find it an invaluable addition to their resources. Bob and Rebecca should be commended for their hard work in putting together such an informative book.”
