Welcome to the home of civilised separation.

Separating? Confused? Scared? Looking for expert advice made simple?If you are separating, you are most likely feeling completely lost, confused, angry, sad, scared, or all of these things. You will have given a lot of thought, and probably many sleepless nights, to wondering what you should do next.You are probably thinking about lawyers and courts, and worrying about your children, your money and your assets. And like most people, you probably don’t want this to get ugly, and cost a fortune.It is possible for you and your family to get through this without destroying your relationships and your future financial security.If you are like most separating couples, you will need some help to discuss your finances, living arrangements for your children, the living expenses of both households and to get legal sign-off on your agreements. But, that does not mean you need to go to court, and the kind of lawyer you choose will be important in keeping you out of court.

Separation and divorce conducted in a respectful, friendly, collaborative manner will help you to avoid conflict and reduce your costs. I know how true this is, because I once worked in the ‘old fashioned way’, going to Court and billing by the hour. I gave that up some years ago, because I saw the hurt and the harm that it caused.
