Represent Yourself in the Family Court

(and do yourself justice)

Represent Yourself in Financial Hearings

Putting you in control of your finances after divorce

Divorce can be stressful, there’s no getting around it, but worrying about what will happen to your finances after divorce can make it even harder. A Financial Hearing will help finalise any joint liabilities between you and your ex spouse after divorce, and help you transition to separate individuals in charge of your own finances. Even so, it can be a worrying time if you’re representing yourself in court and not sure how to prepare for a Financial Hearing. That’s where this course will really help. After you’ve taken the course you’ll feel prepared and more confident about the process of representing yourself in court.

Thorough preparation and insider knowledge

To represent yourself effectively in court and increase the chances of getting the outcome you want, you’ll need to present your case properly and familiarise yourself with what happens during Financial Hearings. In the course I’ll explain the various documents involved in Financial Hearings and how to prepare them. You’ll see examples of different documents and we’ll go through them in detail. 

18 years of experience helping people represent themselves in the Family Court

I’ve known for a long time that representing yourself in court is a viable option that doesn’t have to jeopardise your case. You just need some insider knowledge and thorough preparation. I’ve been where you are today and the process of representing myself in court inspired me to train as a McKenzie Friend and barrister so I could help others going through the same thing without the help of a solicitor. I’ve supported people for over 18 years now through both my courses and lectures, and personal services. I want you to come out of that courtroom feeling like you gave it your best shot.

Guiding you through

In the course you’ll learn exactly what you need to prepare for a Financial Hearing, what happens on the day, and what happens afterwards. We’ll also cover preparing for Second and Third hearings. I’ll guide you through the whole process of each Financial Hearing, step by step, from beginning to end. 

I’ve been where you are now – you can read more about my story here – so I know how it feels, but I also know that YOU CAN DO THIS.

Imagine how much more confident you’ll feel walking into that courtroom with all this knowledge behind you.
