We are an award winning law firm known for leaving our clients feeling proud that they’ve divorced with dignity. Our clients have described the experience in working with us as “easy”, “less stressful” and “simple”. Some of them refer to us as the “amicable divorce lawyers”.

Based in Canberra, we work with people from across Australia and those living overseas who want their separation to be recognised in Australia.

Founder, Siobhan Mullins

Collaboratively trained, award winning family lawyer and bestselling author, Siobhan Mullins, founded Separate Together after realising that there was a need to help people understand the separation process so that conflict, expensive lawyers and court could avoided.

Siobhan believes that there is an incredible power at the intersection of helping people through education about the separation process and doing it in a unique and different way. Siobhan’s AMICABLE Method is detailed in her bestselling book, Splitting Up Together: The How-to for an AMICABLE Divorce.
