Farming families can experience particular difficulties at the easiest of times. We understand that you may own a large asset in the form of your farm but that your income may be limited and subject to unforeseen circumstances.
Your farm may have been in your family for generations and you may feel that the work of your forbears needs to be recognised in your settlement.
Or perhaps your parents still live on the farm and are finding it difficult to let go; this would be a normal response to a job that requires commitment for 365 days of the year come rain or shine.
Your partner may not be from a farming family and has found it difficult to deal with your focus on the farm. Your partner may be working 16 hours a day and not had the time to spend with your children.
We aim to help you negotiate your way through these difficult conversations and find a path to the future which allows you to live, work and most importantly, look after your children.
