We started The Separation Guide after seeing friends and family suffer through long and drawn-out separations, damaging their relationships and denting their finances.
Much of the language in family law is around fighting and escalation.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
The key is for people to have access to the right information as early in the process as possible.
Without this, they can be at risk of spending too much time and money, all of which adds to the stress of separation and divorce.
Our interactive Q&A is the starting point.
It’s designed to explain the process, suggest next steps and connect people with the experts they might need for their circumstances.
Our free resource hub is also packed with videos, podcasts and templates that help demystify separation.
We don’t provide advice because everyone’s situation is unique.
Instead, we have created a strong network of experts from across Australia who can support people through their separation — including Mediators, Family Lawyers, accountants, financial advisors, psychologists and counsellors.
They all share our commitment to open communication and Court as a last resort.
Since launching in October 2019, we’ve helped over 46,000 people.
Let us know if we can help you too.
