Pre-separation advice

People often come to me for pre-separation advice, wanting to know how best to separate when the time comes and to make sure they are protected.

The separation process can seem overwhelming. If you’re considering ending your relationship, it can be helpful to get some early legal advice to go through your options.

I’ve found that once people know what is involved and the choices available to them, they typically feel relieved and calmer about the future.

If you are worried about your spouse finding out, don’t be – our discussions are confidential and your spouse doesn’t need to know you have gotten some early legal advice.

My approach is simple:

  1. Tell me what has been happening.
  2. I will identify your options to resolve the problems.
  3. I will identify the costs and benefits of each option in a practical way.
  4. I will map out the next steps for you to take.

Give me a call or send me an email to make a time for us to meet. Allow around 1 to 2 hours for us to go through everything. I offer a fixed fee of $150 for the initial consultation, with no obligation to do any further work.

"Thank you so much for your time and generosity and kindness today. It has really helped me"
