Simple Financial Separation

Separating from your partner can be an emotional and traumatic time and can be hard on your finances. You may feel overwhelmed as there are many things to resolve.

Divide provides you guidance and a step-by-step approach to enable you to financially separate without the use of lawyers.

We understand it’s not easy.
We help you begin again. Simply.

As Chartered Accountants, we believe the financial settlement process is one we are best suited to support you through, as it is primarily a financial and administrative process.

We make the process simple by helping you understand and agree on both your current and post-separation financial positions. There are many myths surrounding divorce and financial separation in Australia. For example, you do not have to engage a lawyer for these matters.

We have helped and empowered many clever couples who see the benefit of not having their shared wealth disappear in expensive, ongoing and unnecessary legal fees.

If at any time during the process you need assistance resolving parenting matters we can provide you with the appropriate contacts as we can not provide you with legal advice in this regard. If you are parents, it is important to understand how you will provide and afford to care for a child / children of the relationship. Likewise, if you need emotional support, we can provide you with the appropriate contacts, for you to consider.

This approach means Divide can reduce the cost – both financial and emotional – at this time and help you both move on with your new life.

I am so grateful to Belinda from Divide. My financial separation has just come through and Belinda made the complex process so easy. Because it was an amicable separation, we didn’t want to spend $5000+ on lawyers, but there seemed like no other option. We tried to do the forms ourselves but since they are pretty complicated and there were various other factors involved, they got rejected. Belinda stepped us through everything and did all the forms. I am so grateful such a service exists!


Working with Belinda meant we had all the information we needed at our finger-tips, without a lawyer in sight. She answered every questions we had. Even in an amicable split, you still need to understand all the options.

My ex and I split the bill and saved heaps of money, time and stress. If anyone here is about to go through this stage, my advice is: DON’T hire a lawyer straight-away, chat to Belinda first.
