Fiona Moore specialises solely in the area of Family Law and has practiced family law in Skipton for 17 years building up links and contacts with numerous agencies and colleagues.
Fiona set up Moore Family Law in September 2013 to provide a service with a different approach to meet the needs of each individual client and resolve them issues and conflict they are facing in a pragmatic, reasonable and sensible way for the client and particularly any children involved.
Divorce is not uncommon, you are not alone and you WILL get through it. Around 42% of marriages ends in divorce. It is one of the top most stressful life events.
If it is happening to you, you may have many questions going round in your head, wondering what the future holds, how to protect your children, yourself, your finances.
You may have decided divorce is the only option, you may be on the receiving end of your partner issuing divorce proceedings or you may be at the very early stages of simply wanting to know your options and where you stand.
Whether you are mother, father, resident parent, non-resident parent, primary carer or grandparents divorce or separation can leave a number of issues to resolve with regards to the children. It is always better if the parents can agree the arrangements but if you can’t we can discuss how best to proceed.
Fiona works hard to find out the circumstances and client’s needs to enable conclusive, appropriate advice to be given and to form a working relationship to achieve the desired outcome. Fiona is a member of resolution and works under the Resolution Code of Practice to deal with matters from a collaborative approach.
Fiona is the only accredited mediator offering family mediation in Skipton at present and is keen to be able to offer mediation as an alternative to entering into the court process and empowering people to make their own decisions as to plans for their future.
