Ways We Can Help

Every divorce is different and unique, here are just some of the specialist services Dominique and her team can assist you with.

Financial Settlement Preparation

This process is crafted to instil confidence in your understanding of your financial needs and the potential outcomes of various settlement offers or mediation scenarios you might be contemplating.

These sessions will assist you in addressing essential questions such as: Should you retain ownership of the house? What is the optimal split for the superannuation? What measures are necessary for your long-term financial security?

With Dominique's guidance, you will thoroughly explore your options, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of both the immediate and enduring financial and lifestyle implications of your decisions today.

Collaborative Divorce

Dominique will bring together a team to work with you as a couple, helping you transition from one household to your family in two homes.

With a focus on avoiding court and helping you navigate and negotiate the financial and co-parenting arrangements.

This keeps you as a family in control of your future, with outcomes for the children at the heart of decisions.

High Conflict Divorce

If it is clear that you and your former partner cannot agree. Unfortunately, formal evaluative mediation or court may be your path.

Dominique will help you be prepared through divorce coaching and specialised divorce financial advice. She will work with you and your family lawyer to help you work through the emotional upheaval divorce causes and help you focus on the outcomes you need to secure your future.

Financially Complex Divorce

Our Services

Divorce is something that hopefully, you will only ever face once in your life. As experts working with clients going through divorce every day, we can take the uncertainty out of the process and work with you providing you a combination of divorce coaching and financial advice tailored to your needs. You can also elect to focus on just divorce coaching or divorce financial advice.

Divorce coaching is a specialised form of coaching that focuses on helping individuals navigate the complexities of divorce with confidence and clarity. Our experienced divorce coaches are here to provide the necessary tools, knowledge, and emotional support to help you transition through this difficult time.

So, what sets divorce coaching apart?

Unlike therapy or legal counsel, divorce coaching is future-focused and action-oriented. It empowers you to make informed decisions, set realistic goals, and create a positive vision for your post-divorce life. Our coaches work closely with you to develop personalised strategies that address your unique circumstances and aspirations.

What should I expect from divorce coaching sessions?

You can expect a safe, non-judgmental space to express your emotions, fears, and concerns. Dominique and her team are compassionate listeners who will help you process your emotions and gain clarity. 

Benefits of Divorce Coaching

You do not need to face divorce alone. By having a divorce coach by your side, you will be: 

  • Gaining a clear understanding of your options for resolving financial division and children's issues.
  • Educating yourself about the legal process and being well-prepared for each stage.
  • Minimizing legal costs by working efficiently and effectively with your lawyer.
  • Streamlining the process by leveraging our years of experience and avoiding common mistakes.
  • Reducing the emotional toll by having a supportive advocate by your side.
  • Utilizing an impartial third party as a sounding board for making well-balanced decisions.
  • Building a strong support network of professionals, including a lawyer.
  • Learning effective communication tools to reduce conflict with your former partner.
  • Equipping yourself with negotiation skills to navigate the process.
  • Accessing well-curated information and resources to support you throughout.
  • Having someone to help you envision your future and focus on what truly matters.
  • Learning self-care techniques to prioritise your well-being.

Divorce Financial Advice is focused on answering a range of key questions as you negotiate your financial settlement; these include:

  • What documents do I need to gather together?
  • Should I keep the home?
  • Am I better to buy or rent? If so, how much can I spend?
  • What is a fair way to divide assets?
  • What are the financial implications of keeping some assets vs. others?
  • What level of debt should be maintained?
  • What will your long-term financial position look like?
  • What child support will I be entitled to?
  • Should I be looking for ongoing maintenance payments from my ex, or am I better to get a lump sum today?
  • How can I protect my children if I become unwell or pass away?
  • Will I be financially secure in 5, 10, 20 years?
  • Are there any unintended tax consequences?
  • What will my future cash flow look like?
  • Can we still run a business together?

As we work through these questions, there are three steps we navigate:

  1. Building Your Divorce Vault - We will work with you to streamline your financial paperwork, saving time and money. This includes gathering and organising your financial information, ensuring you understand your assets, and providing easy online access to key parties such as your family lawyer. 
  2. Financial Settlement Negotiation - During this time, we will build comprehensive financial cash flow and asset projection models that explore the full range of possible financial settlement outcomes. Helping both you and your solicitor understand the range of negotiation possibilities and the consequences of each. 
  3. Your Future Plan - Once the dust settles from your divorce, we'll be there to provide comprehensive support. Our services include facilitating the smooth transfer of assets, helping you establish new investments or loans, assisting with property transactions, and, most importantly, preparing a holistic financial plan tailored to your future needs. You can count on us to guide you through this transition and ensure you have a solid foundation for a secure future for you and your children.

  • Helping you to get clarity as to whether you should stay or leave the marriage.
