Legal & finances
We help with all aspects of divorce and separation including if you need help getting divorced, agreeing on how to separate your finances or formalising your agreement in a consent order. We work with couples together to keep things amicable and affordable, wherever you’re in the process.
Children & pets
If you’re separating and you have children, you don’t need to go to court to make agreements for them. You can agree to these between yourselves or with help from a professional. We provide coaching sessions to help you to agree on the best arrangements for your family.
Relationships & emotional support
If your relationship has come to an end, understanding the emotional journey and your options is an important part of the process. We work with couples together, so that you're supported every step of the way. Explore our services and resources.
