Collaborating together with Jacqueline helped us focus on the key priorities – our children

We wanted to separate amicably and not ruin our future relationship by fighting each other using lawyers – especially because we will be in each others lives frequently as we continue to work together & raise our kids.

It’s an awful situation that you just don’t need to make worse. Collaborating together with Jacqueline helped us focus on the key priorities (our children), understand & agree to what is fair and move quickly towards an outcome that both of us can accept.

Jacqueline mediated very well and we could practically agree on many items quickly. I shudder to think about the time & cost this would of incurred using individual representation – let alone the emotional drain this would be on your life.

I am not sure how I would have managed without Anna’s help and advice

Over the past four years Anna has helped me enormously co-parenting my child with a high-conflict ex who can make life feel like a lonely, insurmountable, daunting, unrelenting and never-ending saga. Anna has provided me with the knowledge, tools and, at times, a metaphoric ‘shoulder cry on’ to make my co-parenting journey a more manageable task. Her compassionate, but practical advice has helped me decipher fact from fiction and, reality from figments of imagination, to ensure that I am always, first and foremost, focussed on the ‘best interests’ of my child. I am not sure how I would have managed without Anna’s help and advice. If you are going through a separation, divorce and/or a parenting situation please do yourself a favour and contact Anna at Separation and Divorce Advisors – you will not regret it.

Jacqui made a difficult matter far easier by her guidance and practical advice.

Jacqui was able to take an emotional, complex situation and distil it down to the pieces that needed to be addressed at the time as opposed to barraging us with huge chunks of information and administration which could be at times overwhelming.

She was empathetic but continued to ensure we all stayed focused on producing a good outcome for our children and for ourselves. She was supportive but not biased in anyway, in fact went to extreme lengths to ensure she was balanced and both parties received the same information.

Jacqui made a difficult matter far easier by her guidance and practical advice. She always started with what was right for the children which was exactly how we wanted to manage our separation.

Anna demonstrated such a level-headed, thorough and practical approach

I am incredibly grateful for Anna’s expertise in assisting with navigating a gruelling and difficult separation from my ex-husband. Anna demonstrated such a level-headed, thorough and practical approach at the times when dealing with such a high conflict ex-husband became almost too much. Importantly, Anna showed me practical methods to respond with a measured, informed and calm approach to protect my wellbeing and that of my children.

I discovered that going through a separation/divorce is very much a case of ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ and in many cases Anna proved to fill the ‘gap’ of information, consideration and empathy that sometimes my solicitor did not provide.

Anna always informed me with compassion and understanding about processes and pitfalls of the legal system. Importantly, always central to her approach was mine and my children’s wellbeing. Anna’s unique combination of understanding human behaviour, negotiation and Family Law has in practical terms saved legal costs, therapy costs and at times my sanity.

Throughout the process I felt well informed and supported

I met Jacqueline in the early stages of my separation, she was very supportive, informative and understood that the relationship may or may not be reconciled. This was discussed without judgement or agenda. Throughout the process I felt well informed and supported. My options for financial separation were discussed at length with strategies employed to ensure the separation was minimally emotionally taxing and provided the best outcome for me. The emotional support Jacqueline provided was fantastic in light of new information about my ex. Through her support and advice I was able to conduct myself in a way that exercised both restraint and strength. By doing so my outcome was positively affected. I’m grateful that this process was streamlined with minimal input from lawyers and minimal financial burden generated. I highly recommend. (Father of Two, Medical Industry)

Jacqueline was amazing. I will be forever grateful.

Jacqueline was amazing. She was always available, and gave a well balanced view of the situation I was facing. The strategies that we put in place were key to me getting the outcome in court, that I wanted. My final hearing was two weeks ago and Jacqueline was the key to my success in getting regular time back with my children. I will be forever grateful.

Jac’s guidance, empathy, practical approach and advice was invaluable

Jac’s guidance, empathy, practical approach and advice was invaluable at what was a very tumultuous and emotional time – I’m not sure I would have come through my separation as well as I did without her help – I would highly recommend.

Jacqueline felt like my own personal secret agent. She deciphered all of the legalese which overwhelmed me in an already stressful and very emotional time. She also acted as an emotional support person that I could go to which meant I didn’t lump that onto my partner at home. She was able to provide recommendations on how best to manage the communication with my ex-husband. Lawyers play a vital role in a separation and divorce but in my experience they do not provide the level of support and care that Jacqueline did. As a result I was able to keep my emotions in tact, and also my legal fees down to a minimum. Thank God I found her!
