Divorce can be nasty, belabored and costly but what if the couple divorcing were cool with each other and didn’t have too many squabbles during their formal separation? Could the divorce process be easier?
Given there is an app and website for everything nowadays, why not the divorce process?
That is where Wevorce comes in. The site, which launched in 2013, is “a web-based service that’s empowering couples to reach a divorce agreement without a vicious courtroom battle.”
Wevorce removes pain, time and expense from divorce so families can begin again. It starts with the separating couple discovering their Divorce Archetype™ and includes the creation of Parenting and Financial plans.
And it is less costly.
The average divorce cost in the United States is $27,000 but the average Wevorce costs $5500. And the kicker…prices start at $749. Well, hello!
Wevorce is also less time-consuming and has a high settlement rate. On average, Wevorces take 88 days, and it has a 98 percent settlement rate… on track to do 3500 divorces in 2016.
Co-Founder Michelle Crosby, a product of divorce herself credits the platform’s success to the company’s approach to divorce.
Instead of pitting the spouses against each other – with the help of a lawyer – Wevorce is all about encouraging them to work together to outline financial plans, parenting plans and an overall foundation for a couple’s divorce process, she told PEOPLE.
There are two ways to get through the divorce using Wevorce.
A DIY method requires the two spouses to use a divorce log on the program after an initial consult. They go through the steps, which includes foundation building, financial planning and parenting planning, before obtaining their paperwork and preparing to officially file.
Throughout the program, there’s a link to connect with a professional to help a couple through a particularly difficult decision or conversation
For those who need more hand-holding, the site assigns one attorney to walk thru the process, amicably.
And the company is holistic and empowering.
Throughout it all, the focus is on minimizing stress and keeping the couple from going at each other’s throats. During parenting planning, spouses are able view pictures of their children onscreen to remind them of what’s important, and motivational quotes are also provided to keep the couple grounded and focused on the future.
“We don’t treat it like a problem and a fight,” Crosby says. “It’s decision making.”
Good stuff! If you are going through a divorce that isn’t too messy, give Wevorce a look.
