Welcome!

How can we help?

Gracefully end what was a beautiful beginning to your relationship.

Even before you or your partner decide to separate, you face the challenge of a traditional family law legal system designed to help you succeed at engaging in a destructive, stressful, complicated, combative, and expensive process. But, it doesn’t have to be that way for you and your family.

By making the complexity and anxiety of separating simple and easy, we believe that you can achieve the very best outcomes for you and your family.

We are Separate Together, a small family law firm based in Canberra, and we work with couples who are on talking terms to help them make their separation and any agreements official.

Splitting Up Together: The How-to Handbook for an AMICABLE Divorce

Written by Siobhan Mullins, collaboratively trained family lawyer and founder of Separate Together, Splitting Up Together breaks down, from start to finish, the steps involved for you to separate, reach an agreement and make it all official. 

This plain English easy to read how-to handbook gives you Siobhan’s A.M.I.C.A.B.L.E. method so you can work together with your partner, achieving the best outcomes for you and your family, in a timely cost-efficient and positive way. 

“An easy to understand practical how-to guide on amicably divorcing. A must read for anyone in the process of or thinking about splitting up”

“This book goes to show that divorce doesn’t have to become ugly and complicated. There is a clear simple, process that can be followed to avoid ending up in court fighting”

“A ripper of a book that deserves a place in bookstores everywhere”

“Many people out there will benefit hugely from such straightforward and clear writing”

“A very practical, helpful useful book that fills a gap in the marketplace”

“I found it to be thought provoking; answering questions that I didn’t even know I had. It made me consider my relationship in a different light. I’d recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about divorce or who is going through one”

What clients say

After contacting Siobhan it was like a breath of fresh air. Everything was finalised within a week and it went smoothly, efficiently and correctly."

Separate Together provided us with prompt, professional and a humble service. Our matter was commenced and completed in an exceptional timeframe and we have now moved to the new chapter of our lives.

I was impressed with the quality of service, the transparency, understanding, support and ease of lodgement through the courts . It made my stressful journey simpler.

Siobhan was super helpful and clearly explained everything that needed to happen. She was very supportive and put up with my endless questions.

Thank you doesn’t seem to be enough to express my appreciation for the work you and your team have done on my behalf. You made a very stressful situation manageable and simplified the requirements. Your empathy, compassion and professionalism was greatly appreciated.

Siobhan and the team at Separate Together have been amazing. Every step of the way they provided clear instructions and guidance on what we needed to do and what we could expect. Working with Separate Together has made a massive difference to the overall cost of our separation. They explained all the legal terms in an easy to understand way and everything was completely transparent. The team went above and beyond to support us in getting our agreement approved in such a short time frame. Can’t recommend enough. I can now respectfully move on and purchase a home for my children and I.
