PUTTING YOU IN CONTROL OF YOUR SEPARATION JOURNEY

The process of separation and divorce is, for most people, unknown territory.  Many people have heard stories from friends and family about their experience and ready to offer well meaning advice on what you ‘should do.’

We see far too many clients who have already gone down a certain path and it has proven to be an expensive and long drawn out process.  We are presenting these workshops for those people who want to get the facts about the separation journey they are about to embark on, clear up any misconceptions or misinformation they may have received so they can walk away armed with a wealth of information to help them in their decision making.

To ensure you receive valuable and informative information we have brought together our own team of professionals, experts in their areas of expertise including legal, finance and mediation, children’s concerns  and child support, as well as mindset, communication and self care.

We will be providing you with what you need to know right now to ensure you are well informed to move through your separation with awareness of how the ‘system’ works, know what steps to take, financial outlays you can expect, as well as how to manage overwhelm and other emotional reactions so you experience less stress, less sleepless nights and remain focused on your outcomes.

Each workshop is packed full of valuable information with time allowed to have your personal questions and concerns answered. 

Professional support & guidance.

DIVORCE IS A PROCESS – SEPARATION IS A JOURNEY

Lorrie Brook and Jenny Smith have joined forces to combine their experience, knowledge and commitment to providing a better solution for couples who are separating.

This is a time of turmoil, confusion and uncertainty for everyone involved and we have come together to present these workshops so that people who are thinking of separating or have separated have the path ahead simplified.  Most people have no idea where to start and there is a misconception that they must engage a lawyer as the first step.

We know it is very important to have a great lawyer in your corner, however it is not necessarily the first or best thing everyone ‘should’ do.  

Some of the reasons why we believe there is a better approach than engaging a lawyer straight away.

  • It sends an unwritten and/or unarticulated message to the other party that the gloves are on and it’s going to be a battle
  • It leads to unnecessary and costly outlay of financial resources
  • It may mean that some people find themselves spending up to 2 – 4 years trapped in the system unable to move on with their lives

THIS IS THE LAST THING WE WANT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

Combining our knowledge and experience gained over 20 years working in our respective modalities we are committed to creating change in how the current system operates with the intention of:

  • Providing education on the key issues everyone needs to know
  • Reducing the time it takes to reach resolution
  • Educating people on how the process works , the things to do, the things to avoid
  • Proving the opportunity to clear up any misconceptions
  • Better informed leads to better decisions
  • Helping people take control of the situation with integrity and self-respect
  • Helping people move on with their lives more quickly

WHAT WE WILL COVER

  • The 7 things you need to know from a Family Lawyers perspective
  • Why you should speak to an accountant before you settle
  • Why engaging a Mediator is so important
  • Arbitration as an alternative
  • How to reach resolution amicably
  • The power of managing your emotions
  • How to move forward with strategy and intention
  • How to make considered and informed choices
  • The hidden pitfalls you need to be aware of

OUR NEXT BRISBANE WORKSHOP JANUARY 13th 2018

Venue to be confirmed

Lorrie Brook

Lorrie has worked as a Family Lawyer in Brisbane for over 7 years and is the Founder of Our Children, a website dedicated to providing support for parents after divorce.

She started her career as a Family Lawyer and practised for a number of years before undertaking training and subsequently being appointed as an Independent Children’s Lawyer and Separate Representative.

Whilst this work was undoubtedly rewarding she wanted to help families before their children became embroiled in disputes and it was through this that she discovered her passion lies with helping families find an alternate means to communicate.

This passion for making the separation process easier for everyone involved has been the catalyst for the creation of Separation Made Easy.

Jenny Smith

For the past 10 years Jenny has used her extensive coaching experience to focus on providing a range of services and support for women at all stages of the separation and divorce process to ensure they are able to remain focused on their agreed outcomes, maintaining their integrity throughout the process, celebrating their success and setting them up to create a new life.

Jenny started her coaching career in 2007 and the decision to combine her coaching experience, knowledge and skills with Lorrie’s Family Law background and focused attention on issues related to children caught up in the separation process, alignment of values and desire to create a better way for couples to separate has been the foundation on which Separation Made Easy has been built.
