Having never experienced a divorce before I was blindsided by how little I knew of the relevant law, and process. My first meeting with Jacqueline was very extensive and I left feeling much better (albeit emotionally drained!) about the road ahead.
In addition to Jacqueline’s knowledge of the process, her empathetic nature and care for her clients was very apparent, and extremely comforting during this turbulent time.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jacqueline to anyone in need of a divorce expert who also displays compassion and empathy.
I was fortunate to meet Anna half way through family law (parenting) proceedings. This was just after I had an FDRS conference. I was at a very low point. Anna understood my situation and how I was feeling. She explained legal process in a truthful and frank manner, better than any lawyers I had dealt with. I was so grateful to have her support and guidance from here on.
Anna helped with the day to day problems with my ex, my child’s behaviours, handling professionals and the legal response. She equipped me with the skills and knowledge to build my confidence and give me a sense of hope and control. I learnt that I had the ability to be assertive. Anna’s method is purposeful and she is very strategic. Anna is highly professional and ethical in her work. I couldn’t have reached the outcome I obtained without her.

The process of separating is both emotional and difficult for the best of individuals.Separation & Divorce Advisors’ sincere, but strategic, constructive and balanced advice was invaluable and I would encourage any client to engage with Separation and Divorce Advisors, to achieve a logical and fair outcome in any separation/divorce.
What I found most helpful in working withSeparation & Divorce Advisors was the clarity in which they helped me to understand the different elements of the separation process, including the legal processes involved with Separation & Divorce. They 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 throughSeparation & Divorce Advisors were very reassuring and calmed my nerves; they helped me to deal with the anger I felt by the responses I was receiving. They 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. Separation & Divorce Advisors were incredibly constructive, confident and reassuring. I always felt that I could contact their team anytime; they made themselves available when I needed support. I would strongly recommend SDA to help guide and advise you through your separation or divorce.
