Going through separation and divorce can leave you feeling lost and alone.

Where do you find clear reliable information on what's supposed to happen next? How do you even start working out a plan for the kids? How do you split your assets when no one will give you a straight answer?

Do I need a lawyer? Do I have to go to court?

So many people, just like you, travel this lonely and overwhelming road after separation, and this is the point where you get to make a choice. You may not feel like you have the strength, but I’m here to tell you you do. 

Right now, you have the opportunity to make a conscious choice about creating a separation pathway that’s consistent with who you are.

Let me show you how.

Hi, I'm Rachael.

I work with both individuals and collaborate with family lawyers to provide quality legal information and affordable online mediation services.
