Divorce can be messy.
We're here to simplify it.

welcome to equal exes

Equal Exes are the leading divorce/separation
coaching and settlement experts in New Zealand.

Going through a divorce can
be a huge challenge.

An average amicable divorce costs upwards of $20,000, while a high-conflict divorce can cost anywhere from $50,000 to hundreds of thousands.

From the emotional toll it takes on everyone involved, to the financial pressures that it brings and the time it sucks up, divorce can be a nightmare.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Our aim is to help people, just like you, achieve positive custody settlements and better financial outcomes.

Our face-to-face and online resources and coaches emotionally empower and educate people who are navigating the separation and/or divorce process.

Separating with dignity is possible. With the right support by your side.

meet the founder Bridgette Jackson

Bridgette is the Founder of Equal Exes. She launched the business
in 2019, after going through her own high-conflict, five-year divorce.

She is an experienced entrepreneur, with many years in the public eye within the women’s health space.

Bridgette is a CDC Certified Divorce/Separation Coach, Settlement Strategist, a Collaborative Coach, a qualified lawyer, and has a post-graduate dispute resolution qualification.

Bridgette is also a trained Divorce Mediator and has found that many clients (& ex-spouses) are willing to be amicable, collaborate, and undertake guided resolution and informal mediation around their custody and relationship property matters. This avoids the parties having to engage in legal battles that ultimately place more stress and expense on both parties.

Combining her own experience and qualifications, she decided to train as a Divorce Coach – and she never looked back after a very traumatic divorce.

Now, her goal is to help other people avoid those pitfalls and mistakes as they go through their own divorce journeys.

The amount of assistance and information she gave me was exceptional. She is very professional and always available when needed. I highly recommend Bridgette.
