Our Children Are the Future

When marriage turns out to be too big a challenge, Edith van Ruitenbeek tells her clients that the next biggest challenge is making a fair and sustainable divorce covenant and… parenting plan.

As a divorce lawyer and mediator she always tries to make sure the spouses think as caring parents when they have to make a parenting plan. Because the emotional wellbeing of the children is a conditio sine qua non when it comes to a good future. The best education will fall short if daily life is merely a struggle to survive.

As family lawyers, they try to make politicians see the consequences of the actual laws and political choices (to be) made. First of all, they ask them to increase the number of tools created for the protection of children in divorce cases. Especially in high-conflict divorces in which the children become the ultimate victims. But they also ask for more facilities enforced by laws.
