More than half of all separating people seek help to reach and formalise a financial settlement.
If you do need assistance, it makes sense to try neutral, non-adversarial options first. It's always much faster, less stressful and vastly less expensive than wading into the brutality of the legal system.
We're Australia's leading specialist financial settlement firm.
We're not lawyers! And that means we can work neutrally for both of you, rather than just one side. We've helped thousands of separating couples to reach sensible agreements at a cost-effective price.
How we can help
The best way to progress your settlement depends on where you have got to with your efforts so far.
Chances are, your current situation is like one of the five scenarios below. In each case, we'll show how we can help you move forward.
"I just want to know what's a fair and reasonable way to divide our finances..."
"We need a specific recommendation on how we should settle financially..."
"We need someone to mediate so we can come to an agreement..."
"Realistically, we're never going to agree. We just need someone to decide for us..."
"We've reached an agreement and now we want to make it formal and legally binding..."
Don't we need lawyers?
Probably not. Some people mistakenly think that you must go to lawyers to get a financial settlement. That’s an option, but it’s a substantially more expensive, slower and more stressful path to choose.
Here's how your options compare:
As you can see, going to lawyers and court is the last option you should consider, only if you’ve tried everything else!
The average wealth of couples who choose to have their matter decided in Court is $2.8 million in the Federal Circuit Court and $6.8 million in the Family Court. If you have that sort of wealth, then maybe you can afford $200,000 in legal fees and maybe you'll be willing to wait up to 4 years to get your matter decided.
But most regular Australian families don't go that way - only around 1.3% of separating Australian couples end up getting a Court to decide. It just burns up far too much time, money and life energy. Those are all better spent with looking after your children and getting on with your career and your life.
Some Client Feedback
“We’re so glad we worked through you people at Divorce Partners. We’re both satisfied with the agreement we reached, and it was far quicker than stories we’ve heard from friends who have gone through lawyers. Happily put that behind us so we can move on with our lives.”
“The Settlement Report was extremely helpful. It really helped us understand how settlements work and your recommended deal structure was spot on for us - really practical and we both agreed we think the outcome was fair.”
“Thank you for the Range Read report. It helped me understand that my expectations were a bit out of line and my ex and I agreed a settlement the week after we read the Report. Thanks again.”
“That Settlement Report was the bomb! Super informative and gave us the complete picture. What you suggested we do was kind of what we were thinking but it was so reassuring to see that your objective view was mostly the same. We feel confident that our deal was fair. Really convenient that you guys can do our Consent Orders too, thanks!”
“Our Mediator was great - so supportive and understanding but also I liked that she was frank and told us what we each needed to hear. It definitely hit me that we were wallowing around with all sorts of opinions but once we heard Veronica’s experience across hundreds of clients it made such a difference. My ex agreed he was being unreasonable on some parts and honestly I can see I was too. I tell anyone I meet who’s separating that they should come to you.”
“So simple and clear - cut through all the b***s*** and told us what we needed to hear. Can’t say we’ll ever be amicable again, but your service got the job done quickly and was very affordable compared to using lawyers! Very pleased, thanks all.”
