Hi. Welcome to Module 1 of the series, "How to get a Divorce in Australia."

My name is Leanne Abela and I'm Director and Partner of Pearsons, and in this Module I'll be providing you with two essential checklists of the things you should do right here and right now, which are at no cost.

Over the years, we've done thousands of divorces and separations and what we find time and time again is that often one of the parties has an unfair advantage over the other as a result of documents which they have access to, or resources, or steps which they have taken prior to the separation.

So in this module I'll be providing you with two checklists which will give you access to information and documents which will let you in to the separation process on an even playing field.

This is the first of three videos, including the overview in this module. The next two videos deal with the two essential checklists. The first checklist is action that you should take immediately and the second video deals with documents you should collect straight away.

So, that's it for the overview. If you're ready, why not move on to Video 2 which is action you should take right now.

All our videos in this Youtube series can be found through the Pearsons Youtube Channel at or by visiting the Pearsons website at and following the links.

Alternatively, if you know that its simply time to see a Family Lawyer, please contact us for a free initial consultation. Please be advised that we must complete a conflict check so that we can only represent one party in a Family Law matter. So if your partner is watching this same Youtube series and engages our services before you do, we advise that we may not be able to talk to you. Whatever it is that you choose, its our wish that throughout this Youtube series, you can finally gain a sense of certainty so that you 'know where you stand'.
