Rebuilding for Tomorrow

 

Did you know, divorce and or separation isn't just about signing papers – it touches everything: family dynamics, our kids, even our work mojo.   At Time To Inspire, we understand how difficult it can be to navigate through life's toughest phases and no one, most especially children, should ever have to face the traumatic experience.   

We at Time To Inspire (TTI) believe there is a need for awareness and we are here to offer you and your children the support you need during this challenging journey.   We've got your back, guiding you through this transition with all the support, from legal advice to a shoulder to lean on, expertise, resources and a supportive community to help change the outlook and outcome for the better you.  

 

We've got it covered.    

We also recognise the importance of mental health and financial difficulties which can come after separation thus can have a devastating & destructive impact on both the child & parent.    We're dedicated to championing mental health during one of life's toughest phases as we created a tangible roadmap for everyone who is isolated, at risk of exclusion and dealing with or has dealt with the effects of aforementioned difficulties.   Let's navigate this bumpy road together and rebuild a bright future for you and your little ones!  

Our Mission is clear:  To stand by you and your children, providing the vital support needed during this challenging journey and resources that TTI can bring to a wider community - such as our time, expertise, cohesion and the development of skills that will change the outlook and outcome as well as network of professionals who have the right information from the start and have been instrumental in most recent cases at the Supreme Court;  we at TTI, call it a "pit stop!" 

Did you know...

Despite nearly 2 in 4 couples facing separation and or divorce in the UK, that implies that as many as 90% of crime reports the police are burdened with from the relevant population pool are false, and made for the purposes of family court litigation.   MoJ Family Division reported that the prevalence of DA/DV allegations in family court is 62% of all private law cases and many lack the support they deserve.   Further facts also show that 6 in 10 adults (64%) experienced a legal problem in the last four (4) years and 2/3 of the UK population do not know how to get legal advice.

Mental Health

Divorce and or separation can have profound effects on mental health due to the emotional toll and life changes it brings:

Understanding that separation often brings emotional upheaval and seeking help when needed is crucial for maintaining mental well-being during and after the process. Therapy, self-care practices, and seeking social support can significantly aid in coping with the emotional toll of separation.

Financial Difficulties

Separation can lead to various financial difficulties for both parties involved due to several reasons:

Navigating the financial aftermath of separation can be challenging. Seeking financial advice, creating a budget, and planning for the future are crucial steps to mitigate the impact and ensure financial stability post-divorce.

Impact on Children

Divorce and or separation between parents can have various impacts on children, both emotionally and psychologically. Here are some common effects:

It's crucial for parents to provide emotional support, maintain routine, and reassure children of their love and care during this challenging time. Professional counselling or therapy can also help children navigate their emotions and adapt to the changes brought about by divorce.

Legal Difficulties

During a divorce and or separation, several legal complexities and difficulties can arise, depending on the circumstances and the nature of the separation. Some common legal challenges include:

Navigating these legal difficulties during a divorce and or separation often requires legal representation, mediation, and sometimes, court intervention. Having a skilled attorney and maintaining clear communication can help streamline the process and resolve disputes more effectively.

Impact on Work

Divorce and forced separation from children can significantly impact people in the workplace, affecting their productivity, focus, and emotional well-being. Here are some ways it might manifest:

Employers and colleagues who are aware of an employee's situation can offer support, understanding, and flexibility to help them navigate through the challenges of divorce while maintaining a productive work environment. Access to counselling services, support groups, or employee assistance programs (EAPs) can significantly aid individuals dealing with divorce-related stress in the workplace.

Parental Alienation

Parental alienation occurs when one parent, intentionally or unintentionally, manipulates or influences a child to reject, fear, or harbour hostility toward the other parent during or after a divorce or separation. This behaviour can stem from various reasons, including unresolved conflicts, resentment, or emotional distress between the parents.

Parental alienation can be emotionally distressing for both the targeted parent and the child. Recognizing the signs early and seeking appropriate interventions, such as counselling or legal support, can help mitigate the effects and rebuild healthy relationships within the family.
