Take Control of Your Divorce

Every divorce is unique; your family situation, finances, and relationship with your spouse can impact the route your divorce can take, and the amount of money you’ll spend on your divorce. At SplitReady, we’ll work with you every step of the way to help you learn your options and be prepared for every step and facet to file for divorce.

Divorce Basics

Which divorce method makes the most sense for you? How do you prepare your children and family for divorce? Are you ready to handle the cost of a divorce?

In the SplitReady Divorce Basics module, we’ll give you a roadmap for your divorce, help you understand common pitfalls, and explain the different options you have in the process, so that you can be as prepared as possible.


Do you have a clear understanding of your and your spouse’s assets? Do you know what you may be entitled to in the way of child support or maintenance?

In the SplitReady Finances module, you’ll discover what you need to know about your financial situation, and learn what you may be entitled to as you plan for your future.


What is a parenting plan? What are the key components? What does it mean to co-parent? What do you need to think about as you re-structure your family?

In the SplitReady Family Module, you will learn the answers to these questions as we learn about your family and your needs. We will help you create a plan to move forward in a way that works for your family.


Can you afford to stay in your home after your file for divorce? If you’re planning to buy a home after your divorce is finalized, how much home can you purchase? How do child support or maintenance incomes factor in?

In the SplitReady Housing module, we’ll review your current housing situation. Then, with an understanding of your post-divorce housing needs, we’ll explain your options and provide you with the information, tools and timelines you need to make an informed decision.

Getting Divorced

After completing the basics, finance, housing, and family modules, you’ll be ready to proceed with your file for divorce. In the SplitReady Getting Divorced module, you’ll learn what the divorce process looks like, what to be prepared for, and see an example timeline to help you plan your steps.
