Why FairWell?

Deciding to get a divorce can be one of the most difficult and important decisions one will make in their lifetime. Deciding HOW to get a divorce is the next important decision, and it makes a world of difference when you find the right path. FairWell is an option for almost anyone facing the divorce process.

 

FairWell is different than traditional divorce

  • The parties to the divorce drive the process, not the court and not attorneys;
  • The parties work with a neutral mediator, a “FairWell Guide,” to help them identify and resolve disputes regarding dividing assets and debts, determining spousal maintenance and child support, and custody and parenting time of the kids;
  • The parties work with a neutral mediator, a “FairWell Guide” to help them identify and resolve disputes regarding dividing assets and debts, determining spousal maintenance and child support, and custody and parenting time of the kids;
  • Parties know the fixed price for the FairWell Services before they get started in the process, meaning there will be no surprise bills;
  • When they have finalized their decisions, parties receive access to and guidance with the diyvorce document preparation software. They leave the process with finalized documents to file with the court.

FairWell vs. Collaborative Divorce
FairWell Guide escorts the parties through the guided divorce process in his or her neutral capacity.

  • The FairWell Guide works directly with the parties to design a process that works for them, together.
  • The FairWell Guide serves as a facilitator of settlement and a sounding board of ideas to move through the process.
  • The FairWell Guide also serves as a referral source when the parties need additional expertise, such as a financial planner, a home appraiser, a business valuator, or a child centered professional who can help create a parenting plan.
  • By using the FairWell Guide instead of attorneys for each party, the FairWell process places the control back into the hands of the parties.

How It Works

Start FairWell by filling out our simple intake form at the top of this page. You will then be contacted by our team. Your spouse will be contacted and invited to join the FairWell process. If your spouse accepts the invitation, we will put together your FairWell Team. The team is made up of your FairWell Assistant and your FairWell Guide. The FairWell Assistant will set up your file, contact you to make payment arrangements, and schedule your first FairWell session.

Both you and your spouse will receive online interviews to complete. The interviews help your FairWell Team learn relevant facts about you and your spouse, and for you to privately and confidentially share your thoughts about possible ways to resolve the issues. Your FairWell Guide will review all of this information before your FairWell session.

During the FairWell session, you will work with your FairWell Guide to resolve disputed issues. As issues are resolved, we will update the FairWell system. When all the issues are finalized, FairWell will create the necessary documents for you. We will provide you with instructions for filing the documents with the court so you can successfully complete the FairWell process.

  • Fairwell helped make my divorce a more pleasant experience. My now ex-husband and I were able to make it through the mediation process and have all of the paperwork signed and ready to file within a few hours. We could not have made it through the divorce process and still have a decent relationship without this mediation process. I am grateful to have used Fairwell. I am truly grateful to get through everything so quickly...and relatively pain free.Tara
