John came home from work and found a note on the table – his wife and children were gone.  He didn’t know where they were or what he needed to do next. But she made it clear she was not coming back. John wasn’t sure how to choose his lawyer, what things he needed to do and how to sort out division of their property and a plan for their children.

Winnie has been told by her partner that he is leaving her.  He says he will take her to court if she doesn’t immediately agree to sell their house.  They don’t have children but she has put a lot of time and effort into renovating the home because she works part time.  She wants to try and stay there.
