Filing for divorce spikes in the new year, but is there a better way to split?
January 19, 2021
Auckland entrepreneur Bridgette Jackson battled through a high-conflict divorce that cost $500,000 and five years to negotiate – the experience was so traumatic it prompted her to start a new business in divorce coaching.
Jackson, a qualified lawyer with a post-graduate qualification in dispute resolution, founded Equal Exes and wants to turn the story of divorce into “the business of divorce”.
“People don’t have to end up with a bitter, acrimonious experience because money and lawyers are involved, there can be a much more positive way that lessens the impact on children and the wider family,” Jackson said.
“Ending relationships can be less costly, less time consuming and understand the emotional impact while still delivering fair and balanced outcomes.”
