Strategic Plan for Dealing with Separation

With Anna Vote’s assistance I was able to take some of the emotion, hurt and pain out of the dialogue with my former partner and behave in a civil and conciliatory manner during a very trying time in my life. Anna has a great ability to listen and then work out what are the key issues that require attention. She kept me focused on the big picture, help me identify and be clear about my goals and come up with a strategic plan for dealing with separation. I highly recommend Anna and Separation and Divorce Advisors for anyone going through a separation.

Divorce Mediation – I couldn’t have done it without SD Advisors

A mother of two from the Sydney area had this to say about SD Advisor’s divorce mediation and approach.

“When faced with what seemed an insurmountable situation with little to no energy to face the reality, SD Advisors helped me navigate my way through.  Her gentle but thorough approach was not only comforting but also reassuring.  SD Advisors were always at hand to answer questions and understood more than the legal issues I faced.  I not only had a great negotiator but also someone that understood the human condition, not only mine but the family’s dynamics. I don’t think I could have done it without them.  When my thinking strayed into areas of anger and retribution they were able to guide me to a more positive place resulting in better outcomes. Thank you SD Advisors…. you are indeed very special!”

Separation – Sensitive Divorce Counsel Support

Separating from my husband was a profound, and without doubt most challenging experience of my life, and to be frank, I’m not sure how I would have managed without SD Advisor’s wise, non-judgmental and sensitive divorce counsel and support. With warmth and sympathy they provided clarity, helping me to identify and prioritise the issues I needed to address to facilitate the best possible outcomes for myself and my children. Importantly they helped me avoid make a difficult situation worse, by providing strategies to assist me communicate with my husband to achieve my desired results, while avoiding unnecessarily provocative or emotional language in an, at times, highly charged and stressful situation. This means my husband and I continue to successfully co-parent our children and move forward towards our eventual divorce and financial settlement with significantly less acrimony than might otherwise have been the case. I have nothing but positive things to say about SD Advisors, and couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Jacquie was an invaluable asset for divorce advice…

It goes without saying that divorce is a truly soul destroying and difficult time.

But Jacquie was an invaluable asset. Even though I had a lawyer, I desperately needed someone else who could answer my questions, provide divorce advice who was available and who didn’t charge astronomically!  Thankfully Jacquie was recommended to me in the fairly early stages of my divorce.  Jacquie helped me understand the family law system and how to best negotiate a settlement for me and my children.  She also helped me formulate parenting plans and financial budgets.

Jacquie always ensured she was available to either speak or meet with me to help resolve any issue that arose along the way – and there were many!  She also liaised with my lawyer and financial advisor which provided me with an added peace of mind that I had the best possible team looking out for me and my children.  Jacquie always had the children’s best interests in mind.

I thoroughly recommend Jacquie to anyone who finds themselves faced with divorce and a difficult ex.

I was dealing with an adept and complex negotiator…

Jacquie and SD Advisors were recommended to me by my financial adviser at a time when I had already received a proposal from my ex-husband that didn’t provide enough financial support for my future and they were concerned that I would be disadvantaged from the divorce settlement. I was dealing with an adept and complex negotiator, who needed hard facts and reasons throughout the process in order to come to a resolution that would service the whole family. Jacquie was able to divert the emotions into clear thinking and encourage me to spend time working out figures and outcomes based on different realities and kept me strong and steadfast in the face of a very emotional and draining situation. Because of her vast knowledge, how the system works and her experience, I felt able to make decisions and negotiate without having to compromise on my future and the best interests of my boys. With Jacquie’s help in getting me to grow through the process I was able to negotiate the outcome that I wanted. I had great legal advice but I wish I’d sought her help earlier on in the process. I would highly recommend anyone going through this unfortunate process to seek expert help from Jacquie and her team to feel supported and positive about the final outcome.
