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!

It is like having someone with insider knowledge just when you need it most

SDA was an essential service in me surviving the process of separation from an emotional and financial perspective. There is an understanding on what I was going through and a gentle firmness to keep me on track with what I wanted when I drifted away from that. The connections that SDA gave me were excellent in me achieving my outcome. It is like having someone with insider knowledge just when you need it most. Their support helped me navigate this minefield.

Jacqueline was amazing at supporting us through this massive change

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.

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 and, 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.
