You can't start the next chapter if you keep re reading the last one.
The breakdown of a relationship tends to involve high emotions, especially where children are involved.
On an emotional level you may be experiencing a range of feelings – betrayal, anger, sadness, fear, hurt, uncertainty, disappointment, disbelief, or regret. On a practical level you may not know what steps you should be taking or what you should be doing or saying to your partner or children.
Just because divorce is more common now doesn’t mean it is any easier to deal with or simpler to know what to do.
Every family law situation is different, so although you may have friends, family or colleagues who have been through a separation, chances are that the process and outcome in your matter will be quite different, and in fact it can be detrimental to your case to act on advice from anyone apart from a specialist in family law.
The first step to take is to get proper legal advice about how the system works and to understand your rights and obligations.
With compassion and efficiency, we can help you during this difficult time by working with you to resolve your dispute.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the amazing legal work you did on my behalf. Thank you for your hard work to help me with my case.
"Thanks again for everything. You have no idea how much I have appreciated you for the past few years. I will be always grateful
I thank you so much"
I just wanted to say I am very happy with today's outcome. It is always a pleasure to work with you
"I will always be extremely grateful for everything you have done for me. Not only were your fees extremely reasonable, but the way you have always been there, always been kind, always worked so hard for me (even in the middle of the night while I slept - you, many times, were working hard to find a just end for me)."
