What is DivorceGuide
How to get started
The end of a relationship can be as overwhelming, and sometimes even more, than 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 2 hours. If we meet with both of you together, there will be a mix of separate and joint meetings with each of you . 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. Instead, you may make notes should you need them to refer to later.
How much does it cost?
Each two hour meeting costs £200. There’s no VAT and no hidden extras.If you want to meet with your partner, we will charge you each £100 unless you agree to split the cost in some other proportion. If you later decide you want the DivorceGuide service again, we offer 1 hour meetings at a cost of only £100.
What happens next?
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 neighbors 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.”
