Anna has been an amazing support, sounding board and realist.
Over the past few years Anna has been fundamental in helping me get through what could have been a very messy separation. Her knowledge and ability to be one step ahead was comforting. I knew I could put my trust in her. Anna was always professional, calm and dealt in the facts, something I didn’t always do. She enabled me to take some control and helped me secure a good and fair result. For someone who needed so much help, I am so grateful she was recommended to me. I can highly recommend her.
Jacqueline’s support and guidance, was fundamental in the process.
Working with Jacqueline through the separation and collaboration process made a very difficult separation easier. Her compassion for both of us, and gentle supportive approach, helped us negotiate an outcome and reduce the financial and emotional impact of divorce on our family. Jacqueline’s support and guidance, was fundamental in the process. I could not recommend Jacqueline’s highly enough to any couple wanting the best possible outcome for each other and their family.
I can’t recommend Anna highly enough.
I can’t recommend Anna highly enough – having Anna as someone I could rely on to guide me through the complicated messy process of separation meant that she helped me navigate through a really challenging time in my life with confidence. Not only was she super helpful but was always thoughtful about what I was dealing with, and she had a 6th sense of what would help me to deal with what was coming next.
Separation Collaboration – I couldn’t have asked for a better process and result
The process of Separation Collaboration allowed us to express ourselves, our feelings and our wants about the future, yet creating boundaries of respect in the way we spoke to one another and acknowledging the emotional pain we were both in, without delving too deeply into that, so as to continue to keep the ball rolling in moving forward in the separation process. It was an honest, raw and real approach where both parties were heard.
Jacqueline was amazing at supporting us through this massive change in our relationship and our family.
Jacqueline was amazing at supporting us through this massive change in our relationship and our family. She had a wonderful way of providing the facts in a compassionate, non adversarial manner. This focused the conversations onto the future outcome rather than past hurts.
You did a stellar job in helping us navigate a very difficult situation
We are signed, done and dusted. I just wanted to say thanks for all your help through this stressful process. You hear horror stories about how legals play out and cause so much long term damage to your future relationships to your ex – let alone decimating your finances – and I’m just glad we managed to avoid as much of that as possible with your help! I know it’s only the start, really, of our new life but I’m glad we are at least past this part.
Thanks for making it as easy as possible – I thought you did a stellar job in helping us navigate a very difficult situation and establish a way to work together moving forward. And I’m very relieved at the final bill! I’ll definitely recommend you to whoever is, unfortunately, in the position we were in.
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.
