Testimonials


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.

A Difficult Separation Settlement Dispute – Testimonial

I was in the middle of a difficult separation settlement dispute and wasn’t making any real progress, when a friend gave me the details for Separation and Divorce Advisors. I contacted Jacquie and was immediately impressed. She really listened and was not solely focused on the financial aspects of the settlement, but also the very important matter of my relationship with my son.

Thanks again for your help to date, it has really helped me keep focused on the outcome and provided a sounding board for the issues I have been facing and how best to respond to those in the form of a negotiation…. particularly in the early dark days of a divorce in an overseas winter.

Always the Voice of Reason in my divorce

Thank you so much for your consistent and warm support in the past year Jacqueline. It is hard to believe it has taken so long but I have finally handed the signed financial and child support agreement and application for consent to my solicitors, for them to draw up and file with the courts. A HUGE weight lifted from my shoulders. I appreciate how much help you have given me and your sympathetic ear. Always the voice of reason. The next year is looking exciting.

There were so many points I hadn’t thought of for my Parenting Plan…

I cannot thank you enough [for providing me with a list of issues to think about when preparing my Parenting Plan]… there were many points I hadn’t thought of. The majority of people are in an extremely stressed state when they make the decision to end a relationship, or have it made for them by their spouse, so don’t know the basics of what needs to be done.
