About The Separation Guide

We are The Separation Guide, and our purpose is to make separation and divorce in Australia simpler, more manageable and less stressful.

The Australian Family Court System is under immense pressure, with extensive wait periods and high costs.

This is the reason that the government has mandated the use of mediation as a means to resolve matters outside of the courts.

It’s one of the reasons why we created The Separation Guide – to try and take as much pressure off the Courts as we can.


The Separation Guide aims to make separation and divorce simpler, more manageable and less stressful. To find out more about how one of our Network Members could support your separation, take our free 3-minute Q&A.

The information in our resources is general only. Consider getting in touch with a professional adviser if you need support with your legal, financial or wellbeing needs.

Separating or divorcing is a maze. And the stakes are high because taking a wrong turn means time money and even more stress.

The Separation Guide leads you through the maze, connecting you and your partner with the information and services you need to take the right turns. Helping you with a parenting plan for the kids, a financial planner for your assets and liabilities, with all the legal paperwork, with managing your own health or even planning for the family pets.

The Separation Guide are specialist mediators and facilitators, supported by a network of expert lawyers, accountants, financial advisors, psychologists and counsellors.

Our purpose is to make this difficult time as manageable and affordable as it can be.

We believe the best outcomes are negotiated when the parties, and not the courts, are in charge of your future.

So if you’re thinking about separating, have recently separated, or are ready to talk about a settlement and divorce, read our service charter, watch our videos, listen to our podcasts, and learn about our growing expert network. Most importantly take 5 minutes to use our interactive Q&A.
