Dianne was sincere, direct and provided clear and strategically helpful advice, advice that allowed the approach to be fair and constructive for both parties.

The process of separating is both emotional and difficult for the best of individuals. Dianne Jolley’s sincere, but strategic, constructive and balanced advice was invaluable and I would encourage any client to engage with Dianne or Separation and Divorce Advisors, to achieve a logical and fair outcome in any separation/divorce.

Dianne was incredibly constructive & reassuring during my separation

What I found most helpful in working with Dianne was the clarity in which she helped me to understand the different elements of the separation process, including the legal processes involved with Separation & Divorce. She did this with the highest level of attention to detail and professionalism.  Communication from my ex partner was constructively pulled apart allowing me to understand exactly where my ex-partner may have been trying to come from. Despite what I was actually going through Dianne was very reassuring and calmed my nerves; she helped me to deal with the anger I felt by the responses I was receiving. She was very helpful in diffusing the aggressiveness in the communication, and helped me to gain perspective on what was most important – moving forward with my life.  Dianne was incredibly constructive, confident and reassuring. I always felt that I could contact Dianne anytime; she made herself available when I needed support. I would strongly recommend SDA to help guide and advise you through your separation or divorce.

I was going down the wrong path with my divorce and kids…

I am going through a divorce, and with kids. This has been without doubt the toughest time in my life. There is no possible way I would have got this far without Jacquie Wharton’s advice and care. She has been like a rudder on a ship and has steered me in the right direction through an extremely difficult and stressful time.

The feeling of being attacked continuously and seeing no end in sight has been turned around by her skillful managing of me and my lawyer, as well as her focus on resolution and not the hurdles that are thrown in front of you. Being able to develop a suit of armor to the attacks and keep focusing on what’s best for myself and my children.

Like many, this is the first time in my life that I have been attacked as a person and a father of three beautiful young children. If you are going down the wrong path she will guide you back. The scope of her experience is so wide in this area I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her guidance on matters ranging from insights, the legal process ahead and looking after yourself – for this I am almost lost for words, just thank you, I could not possibly have done this without your help, thank you again.

With Dianne’s advice, we reached a financial agreement without incurring further legal cost

Considering separation is a very unfortunate event, I was very fortunate to have Dianne as my advisor to help me reach a financial agreement in my divorce. She is supportive, understanding, experienced and professional. She is always prompt in answering my questions. Though we have never met face to face, I can feel she cares about me as her client. In phone calls, I feel comfortable to discuss any issues I am concerned about in separation. I feel assured that during my most vulnerable time in life, I have trusted people to turn to for help. The advice that I received is valuable which costs a lot less than going to a law firm. With Dianne’s advice, I and my ex-partner reached an agreement for asset division without incurring further legal cost. I think it is a good outcome for both parties.

I was so lucky to find Anna who gave me compassionate but firm separation advice

I was lucky enough to find Anna Vote who gave me separation advice at a very tough time in my life. Anna was able to quickly understand my needs, and to see, foresee, and assist me to solve problems in a sensitive and responsive manner.

Anna was open about discussing how we could best work together, which I found refreshing. She lead me through my tough times with gentleness and compassion, while also providing the firmness I needed on occasion to stop the procrastination and keep going.

Anna was great at preparing me for the next step, and looking at ways I could save lawyer dollars. She pointed out the ‘left of field’ things to think about, which may have otherwise been missed.

Anna is warm and insightful and she clearly ‘gets’ the complexities of human relationships, and how people are affected when things are falling apart. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anna to people experiencing separation and divorce. She was a calming and steadying influence in an often stormy sea.
