I had many meetings with Nikki in regards to my son's separation from his tumultuous marriage and our fears for our grandchildren. Nikki was always helpful and caring and helped us weather our way through a very hard time to sit and watch our son and grandchildren fall apart in front of your eyes is traumatic to say the least. Nikki’s help kept me sane through the whole ordeal.
Coaching Client
Nikki Parkinson is one of my most favourite women. I first met her when I presented at her creative workshop series in Byron Bay. She’s warm and friendly, super professional and she is surrounded by an inspired, creative community. I can highly recommend Nikki at both a business and at a personal level, you won’t find a more genuine and generous being than Nikki.

"Nikki has been instrumental in helping me move forward in my separation and divorce. Knowing that Nikki was there as my support person when I didn't understand the legal system helped ease my fears of going to Court. She was caring, empathetic but helped me hear what I wasn't always listening too. I cannot recommend Nikki's services enough"

Meet our Founder

Hello, I’m Nikki Parkinson.

Separation strategist, family law expert, mother of three, divorcee. Once upon a time, I spent my 9-5 working in the corporate world of family law, ticking boxes and filing court orders. Then my marriage ended and I found myself standing in the shoes of my clients — anxious, alone and lost, despite all my experience.

Standing in a court room is only a tiny part of the process.

We need a holistic approach to divorce and separation.

Today, I specialise in separation strategies for men and women navigating their way through a breakup. With 25 years of knowledge of the family law system, I offer a range of services to meet your needs and budget (because, I know a split can be expensive too).

Whether you choose to work with me one-on-one, download my divorce kit or sign up to one of my programs, I want to empower you with insider knowledge, ease your uncertainty and give you permission to feel your full emotions.

I’ve experienced the difficulties of separation, both my own and my clients. I will guide you through this transitional time with practical, tangible strategies and empathy.

Working with me will bring you clarity, save you time and thousands in legal fees. I help you to move forward with confidence. 

"I first met Nikki about 20 years ago while she was working with a family law specialist in a busy practice based in Lismore and we have worked with each other (often opposite each other in matters) ever since. I have come to know Nikki very well in both professional and personal context. I can, without reservation, vouch for her depth of knowledge and understanding about the various issues surrounding relationship and marital separation. Nikki's skill set extends well beyond the legal aspects of separation. She has an understanding of the impact of separation from an emotional, psychological, financial and personal perspective. Throw into the mix Nikki's amazing and enviable organisational skills, and what you end up with is a complete and comprehensive package which represents a holistic approach to solving the problems which arise from family separation.."
