Divorce lawyer Lausanne/Vevey area
Hi all,

I have just been informed by my husband that he wants a divorce, and I am desperate to find a good divorce lawyer in the Lausanne/Riviera region. Can anybody recommend one? We have two kids aged 8 and 2. I've been a stay at home mom since we came to switzerland 61/2 years ago. Does anybody have an idea as to what I can expect in child support and alimony? I don't mind going back work to support myself and the kids but dont see how i would make it work with a full time job as a single mom. Sorry, dont mean to sound spoiled, I know others do that too but just worry as I know my soon to be ex won't be helping out at all!

Thanks for any advice and help you can give. This is a crappy situation and its not easier when you are not in your own country!

Re: Divorce lawyer Lausanne/Vevey area
Thanks! Yes I've looked at the page you referred to and I do have an idea of the general principles that apply but would like to get counsel from a lawyer as well. No, he's Danish, we both are, but I think we will both stay here, at least for the time being. To be honest, I'll be relieved to be rid of him, but I feel so bad for my kids. They've been through so much this past year, and I worry how they'll cope, especially my son who's almost 9.

I used Sebastien Pedroli in Lausanne for my separation/divorce drama. He is awesome, very human, very savvy. I spoke to him in French but he also speaks fluent English.


I'm so sad you are going through this, I know how much it hurts and am sorry.

Re: Divorce lawyer Lausanne/Vevey area
Thanks so much for the recommendations and links! I am still completely overwhelmed by the situation, and it's reassuring to know that it actually IS possible to come out on the other side :msngrin: my head is spinning, worrying about the kids, finances, work, child care etc etc. I guess you just have to take it one step at a time and if you keep it up, eventually you will push through, right?

Not sure if you will ever read this after so many years, but obviously I'm in a similar situation and I've never been in this situation before and I'm wondering how things worked out for you. For the record, I also stopped working since we came to Switzerland and had the kids, 4 years ago. How did custody, alimony and work turn out for you.
Thank you

Psvolle has not been on here since January 2012.
So maybe you just follow the links and hints she was given back then and some people will update info for you in this thread.

Good luck.

Re: Divorce lawyer Lausanne/Vevey area

I still had notifications turned on for this thread so could see you had posted. Sorry to hear about your situation. Since it's been a while now, yes, things have worked out on my end. I guess one thing I have learned from this is that it tends to do so, even if it doesn't always feel like it :-) We had a mediator for the separation and the divorce, but have later gone back to court with separate lawyers because he did not respect the terms of the agreement with regards to alimony payments. In hindsight I think I should have taken my own lawyer from the beginning, but in any case things are quite stable now, mind you it has also been 5 years. If you want more specific advise, please send me a PM, I'll be happy to help you.

Good luck and hang in there. You will get through it.
