After some research, we decided to engage Anne Freed to help facilitate our separation. Anne helped us identify our mutual goals and kept us focused on what needed to be done. Her friendly, fun and matter-of-fact personality helped us deal with these complex issues. Her vast knowledge of family law enabled us to feel better educated. She was careful to remain neutral and to not give advice, but would present us with facts we should consider in our decision making. At the end of the day, we had a draft separation agreement we could each take for independent legal advice to arrive at a final agreement, and have now started our new lives. That's not to say this journey was easy; it was still a very difficult process that took a lot of time and effort. Overall, I felt like we worked through the process as a team of three: Me, My Ex, and Anne.
