Elaine W joined the team as a franchisee with Family Law Assistance in 2022. Elaine can assist in matters involving families such as divorce, children and finances.
I’m extremely good at one thing. And that’s supporting and encouraging families to put the best interests of any children first. Acknowledging the voice of the child and acting with integrity, objectivity and honesty is my daily intention in order to assist you.
With a background initially beginning in financial paraplanning and switching to six years professional training in family healthcare; I have spent around twenty-five years helping parents understand and manage the long term financial and emotional consequences of the decisions they make.
I recognise no single approach fits everyone and I am able to use my experience, knowledge and adapt my communication skills to guide you through the options available in a calm and safe manner, helping to reduce conflict and confrontation.
With various initials after my name (including a distinction at MSc level) my speciality has been to support the transition to parenting and particularly fatherhood. I have many years of experience working with families who have had their challenges with regards to relationships breaking down and co-parenting successfully. For example, I have regularly attended conferences involving parents, Local Authority and various professionals using the Public Law and the Children’s Act 1989. Additionally, I have training and experience in the following: Level 3 Childrens Safeguarding, Solihull Approach, Family Star Framework, Domestic Abuse, Perinatal Mental Health and Substance Abuse. I have also been a Secondary School Governor with specific Safeguarding responsibilities and a Safeguarding Supervisor for the NHS.
In addition, I can proudly boast that our blended family consists of FIVE children (well young adults now) between us including a set of twins currently at University. On a weekend, you will find me chatting on video calls catching up with the kids and friends, cooking, playing board games or binge watching a box set!
I look forwards to hearing from you!”
