I am considering separating or have already separated. What are my options?

At this stage, this is what we know is probably going on for you. You’re probably feeling overwhelmed. Potentially if you’re talking to friends about separation, you might be hearing lots of different stories and worse case scenarios. If you  have children, you’re probably feeling concerned about what a family separation means for the time you are going to be spending with them in the future.

There are just so many unknowns.

Even if you feel like you’re not ready or you’re not sure that you want to move forward with separation, sometimes you need a few initial questions answered and then you can make some decisions from there.

The saying, “information is power” is just so true.  But we like to change that up by saying “information is empowerment”. Empowering yourself with advice and information about separation will help you to decide your own unique next best steps.

You can then know that you are in control. By speaking with us, you will never have to commit to anything until you’re  ready and your first initial 15 minute telephone consultation is complimentary.

If you’re ready to move forward and get your initial questions answered, please click this link to contact us now to book your complimentary, no obligation 15 minute telephone consultation.
