We work with people going through separation to prepare the paperwork to make their separation agreements official, minimising or eliminating lawyer involvement.
Family lawyer and Director, Siobhan Mullins, founded Separate Together after realising that separating couples who reach an agreement want a lawyer for simply one thing—to review or prepare the agreement paperwork to make sure it’s all in order and can be recognised under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth).
When it comes to preparing their agreement paperwork, our clients have the choice of:
- Purchasing their own draft legal documents from our Online Store (DIY)
- A Hold Your Hand Service (HYH), where we review their draft paperwork before it’s signed
- Getting us to Do It All For You (DIFY). Get your own Quick Quote.
Such agreements include:
- The financial split (formally known as the property settlement)
- Parenting agreements
Where a separating couple have an agreement, they can engage us together—that’s one lawyer only, which means one set of fees. Did we mention that we do affordable fixed pricing?
The hardest part can be reaching an agreement together after separation. Preparing the paperwork to make it official is probably the easiest but when it comes to using a traditional lawyer to do this, it’s simply unaffordable for most.
Siobhan has always wanted to work with people and help them in a meaningful way, having originally started studying social work at uni before moving into social science and law. Siobhan’s unique and innovative approach to practice sees her as a disruptor in the family law legal profession.
Based in Canberra, we’ve worked with hundreds of clients from across the country and overseas, helping them to make their separation agreements official. If you speak to them, they’ll tell you that we made their experience “simple”, “easy” and “less stressful”. Some of them call us the ‘amicable divorce lawyers’.
Separate Together has quickly become Australia’s leading online family law firm.
