Separating but living under the same roof?

The Dad didn’t know where he was going to move to, and didn’t have clarity on the parenting arrangements, so they remained living together while searching for answers.

Separation with a couple still living under the same roof comes with unique challenges. This scenario could also indicate they haven’t settled their property and financial matters, which makes things more complex.

In this case study, the couple were experiencing competing priorities around care arrangements for the children, finances, and property settlement. They chose to remain under the same roof while considering what their next steps would be.

They approached Better Place Australia.

As part of the intake assessment, family dispute resolution team leader, Eliza, completed a risk assessment to ensure both parents felt safe and comfortable to particpate. As part of the mediation process, Eliza initiated a specific strategy to help them in this situation.
