My separation and divorce were my impetus to becoming active in helping Australians deal with this emotional and expensive turning point. My advice is based on my own experience and that of many others, along with the knowledge shared by legal practitioners I have interviewed over the past decade.
Following my own legal proceedings, I thought: There has to be a smarter way to manage this ugly process that sadly, thousands of Aussies experience every year.
If I had to do it all over again, this is how I would prepare myself:
My system will provide you with valuable tips on how to ready yourself for your first meeting with your lawyer. My Divorce Pack will teach you how to interview and engage the right lawyer for your needs, and help you focus on your objectives. The efficiency of your lawyer’s advice depends a great deal on the facts that you gather ahead of your first meeting. Regardless of the lawyer you choose, the work you’ve done before meeting will save you hours of legal expenses.
The decision to seek a divorce (or being pushed into it), is not an easy one. You are entering into an extremely stressful period of your life. By prioritizing your time, activities and goals, starting with your very first legal consultation, you will be best positioned to ensure your emergence from this difficult time in as good a shape as possible, and you will clear the way for the immediate future and beyond.
This is Your Divorce Not Your Lawyer’s Book
This book, written by the founder of Aussie Divorce focuses on ways to do your divorce ‘well’. It demystifies the divorce process and helps you keep an eye on your objectives. This book will also keep money in your pocket - not your lawyer’s. This is Your Divorce Not Your Lawyer’s is an excellent resource when compiling your information and choosing your lawyer. The book has been written with the assistance of an experienced Family Court Barrister.
You would have to be the most helpful person I have come across throughout this whole event.
I really appreciate the support you have shown me and my family throughout this stressful period.
I will most definitely recommend you to anyone I know in a similar situation.
I began searching the net for any helpful information I could find. I followed a link to aussiedivorce.com.au and found Alan Weiss's "Managing Your Divorce" Pack. It sounded like it may be helpful and the notion of its cost being less than one hour of a solicitor's time, appealed to me - so ordered the full kit.
For those of us who haven't been through a divorce before, the "Managing Your Own Divorce" Pack would be one of the best investments you can make to assist you through the process of divorce and property settlement.
I would just like to thankyou for personally ringing me in regards to my query.
You reinforced my own beliefs in the current system and helped me to think straight and to try and eliminate the emotions out of my decisions and reaffirm the practicalities of what I actually need to do to. I am grateful for you in giving me the time and telling me of your experience, I will let you know my outcome and hopefully this time around for me it will be a smoother run.
If I had to do it all over again, this is how I will prepare myself
Thank you Alan

PDF DOWNLOAD (Black & White)
This version of the Aussie Divorce pack consists of two zip download folders - the white folder (15 PDF pages) and the black folder (80 PDF pages). Using your computer, complete these and print them out for your lawyer.
Each folder contains valuable information about the divorce process and the key details you need to factor in to prepare. Included are tips on how to reduce your legal costs by doing some of the legal legwork yourself, meaning less billable hours for your lawyer. The pack includes helpful forms to assist you in key areas: choosing the right lawyer for your case and assisting you with keeping a record of significant interactions during your divorce proceedings.
This will give you a level of control, rather than letting your lawyer take control of you.
Understanding what each folder does and then following the simple instructions will reward your efforts like no other system.
I guarantee your money back: no questions asked. Read More.
