What is DivorceGuide?

Your DivorceGuide is an experienced family mediator and solicitor (non-practising) who will help you to navigate the complexities  of relationship breakdown.

How to get started

The end of a relationship can be as overwhelming as the death of a loved one. It is usually fraught with emotional and financial worries and worries about children. The law may also seem complicated and many do not know where to begin to find help. Research consistently shows that how you deal with your divorce has greater impact on you and your children than any other single factor.

Few want to hire lawyers for a battle, but no one wants to feel vulnerable and taken advantage of. Most people just want a fair settlement that gets them what they need>

Fortunately, there are many people in our communities who are able to help: mediators, coaches, lawyers and financial planners. There are also different ways of making the necessary decisions: DIY, online, mediation, and collaborative practice, all of which allow you full control over the eventual outcome.

But with all these options, it’s no surprise that the choices can look overwhelming. Our DivorceGuide service will help you understand the roles that the different professionals can play and how the various processes work so that you can decide which one is likely to suit you best. There may also be things that you decide to deal with yourself.

What happens at a DivorceGuide meeting?

We will meet you, and your partner if you both wish, for a meeting that lasts for as long as you need (minimum 30 minutes). If we meet with both of you together. You’ll tell us your stories and we’ll listen carefully. We’ll help you identify your goals and we will help you plan your next steps.

For reasons of confidentiality and privacy, and to keep the cost of the service down, the DivorceGuide does not make notes during the session and we will not write or send any correspondence. Instead, you may make notes should you need them to refer to later.

Also, if you choose to, you and your partner can ask us to mediate for you at a subsequent meeting.

What happens after we meet?

You start to act on the decisions you made during the meeting. If you decide that you would like a further session, we can arrange to meet you again.

“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbours to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser… in fees, expenses and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough."
