If you’re separating, thinking about separating, or have separated, there are different challenges that arise in the various stages. This page will help you get some clarity about the things you need to address and questions you need to consider throughout this journey.
We cover Adelaide and South Australia with offices based in Glenelg and Gawler, and conference rooms available elsewhere, so we can make our services not only practical and clear, but also convenient.
These stages of separation are not necessarily numerical steps. However, from our work as specialists in Family Law, we hope they’ll help you identify what support and advice would be the most helpful for you, right now, depending on your situation or “stage”.
Fear of the unknown can hold you back from separation. While it can be difficult, it might also be the key to your health and happiness. With clear options you can make decisions with confidence; intellectually, emotionally, and practically.
There’s enough change, grief, and insecurity following separation, without the burden of contradictory advice and opinions. We can help you get clarity with the practical and legal issues you’re facing, and map out a plan to get you to the other side.
Just like the captain of a sailing ship giving the order to “make full sail”, it can be exhilarating to be finally separated and on your way to having your affairs sorted. But ships can run into hidden reefs, so you still need to keep an eye out for the unexpected along your way.
Even after the dust settles, new grit can accumulate around issues like co-parenting or previously-overlooked financial statements. We can help you address them once and for all, and even help you put some clever thinking into place to prepare for new relationships.
You’re heartbroken, numb and exhausted – and now you’re facing paperwork and decisions on behalf of your departed loved one. Our training and experience means we can help you through this trying time.
We can help you with succession planning, whether you’re making a family unit or ensuring its financial security, or whether you’re protecting your interests and seeking certainty in the event of any life changes.
