We often joke about the ‘D’ word (divorce) but if you are or have experienced the breakdown of a family relationship it is anything but a humorous experience. Although divorce is often unpleasant there can be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Splitsville – How to separate, stay out of Court and stay friends, is a guide for you and your family to navigate the legal issues associated with your relationship breakdown and put you on the path to a successful future.
Written by specialist family lawyer, Clarissa Rayward, Splitsville arms you and your spouse with the information you need to negotiate sensible and sustainable agreements for your finances and your children.
Clarissa’s easy-to-understand and practical advice is based on over 14 years’ personal experience as a specialist family lawyer.
This comprehensive step-by-step guide to separation and divorce explains:
- How to amicably negotiate with your spouse
- What you need to do to avoid the Court process
- Why it’s better to work with your ex- partner rather than against them to achieve your goals
- The importance of continuing communication and compassion
- How to select the right family lawyer
- Real case studies of couples who chose to work together for the benefit of their children
If you are considering or experience divorce or separation and want to minimise the financial and emotional costs to you and your family, then this book is for you.

What others have said
Definitely. Read Splitsville sooner rather than later! I wish I had started this book the day after the breakup – it would have saved me from engaging in a few not-so-helpful text messages (you know the ones). Knowledge is power, and for those solo mums who are feeling threatened by their former spouses over legal issues, I think this book would significantly empower them. – Magnolia
I’m reading Splitsville again and it’s awesome. This will be a book that people will read over and over as they go through the process. It has a nice message through out about being gracious and understanding to get the best outcome and I can see this working now. It also helps when you go back over things to remember that and keep it top of mind when you’re dealing with your ex or even speaking about it to friends or people involved like real estate agents. Thank you for this resource. Honestly I don’t know where I’d be without it and your guidance. While there have been trying times I never wanted my separation to be hurtful in any way and I feel I’ve done my best given my lack of experience in such a circumstance! I’m proud of that. – Liz
I have just finished reading your fantastic book Splitsville and found it full of useful and logical information. I wish I had discovered it earlier on in my separation! I will no doubt be referring back to it as we continue through the process. I ordered the book for my former partner hoping it will help put us both on the same page and lead us to an amicable resolve. Thank you for your sound advice at this difficult time. – Ben
