Individual Consultation

Individual Consultation

Every divorce involves both emotional and financial separation. It also involves a steep learning curve as you determine how to proceed, what information you need, and how to prioritize your issues. Debbie Shawn, founder of Divorce Matters, is available to guide you through the process of preparing for an organized divorce. Debbie understands that ending a marriage is overwhelming. More importantly, she understands that a significant stressor for many is determining how best to proceed in a cost-effective, simple and straightforward manner.

Debbie has developed Checklists, Summary Sheets and Information Modules that are designed to help you be your own best advocate during the Separation and Divorce process. She will work directly with you, using these tools to help you organize your paperwork and financial affairs, ensuring that you and your divorce team have the best opportunity to protect your financial future. The ability to use the time with your divorce team efficiently and to provide required documents on time will ultimately save you money and reduce stress. And, as an added benefit, these new organizational skills will be invaluable as you move forward with the next stage of your life.

In addition to the Divorce Matters’ standardized tools, Debbie can also design personalized systems to meet your individual needs.

Joint consultation with Debbie is another way to reduce the costs of separation and divorce. Debbie is experienced in assisting clients who want to work co-operatively with their separated spouses to organize and complete the necessary paperwork collaboratively.

Individual consultations and appointments can be arranged throughout the GTA.
