We specialise in helping separating couples to prepare the paperwork to make their separation agreements official, minimising fees and reducing lawyer involvement.
Based in Canberra, we work with people from across Australia and overseas. 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’.
We’ve integrated technology to make preparing agreement paperwork quick and easy. Such agreements include:
- The financial split (formally known as the property settlement)
- Parenting agreements
We also offer one on one independent legal advice.
Our clients have the choice of:
- Purchasing their own draft legal paperwork from our Online Store (DIY)
- A Hold Your Hand Service (HYH), where they can engage one of our experienced family lawyers to review their draft paperwork before it’s made official
- A premium service where one of our experienced family lawyers can prepare all of the draft paperwork (what we call our Do It For You service). Get your own Quick Quote.
About Siobhan Mullins, Director & Founder
Collaborative family lawyer and Director, Siobhan Mullins, founded Separate Together after realising that separating couples who reach an agreement together tend to 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)(aka made ‘official’).
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 and her integration of technology sees her as a disruptor in the family law legal profession.
