Going through separation

Separation means the ending of an intimate partner relationship. This includes the end of a marriage, defacto relationship or other personal relationships.

It is often a difficult time, and you may feel unsure about what to do next.

This section provides information and support for people whose relationship is ending. It includes useful tips about how to look after yourself, services to help and the basics about family law.

Services like counselling and family mediation are available to help people who are separating. These services can help people to make arrangements for children and money without going to a family law court.
