Why did The First Wives’ CLIQUE get started?

Keeping your divorce lawyer, your financial advisor, your mediator and counsellor on tap after finalising your separation is cost prohibitive. What people therefore tend to do is bumble along in life and tackle life issues, such as money, parenting, conflict and work, as and when they arise.

The First Wives’ CLIQUE was born out of the realisation that women benefit from ongoing after separation and divorce professional support.

With what we know about women’s financial, employment and social circumstances after separation, it’s important to offer women the opportunity to hear from experts to up skill and educate them to make informed decisions about their lives after separation. After all, as Barbara Bush said, ‘To empower a woman is to empower her children, her family and her community’.

What can I expect in attending The First Wives’ CLIQUE seminar?

You can expect to hear from experts in their field about topics relevant to you about your life after separation. You’ll be in good company with a supportive network of separated women who are or have been in similar situations to yourself.

Can I bring someone with me?

Absolutely! You can register to bring someone to attend their first session for FREE.

Is there parking available?

There sure is! We’ve chosen a venue that offers free easy parking immediately outside of the venue, which is also close to public transport.

Are men welcome?
