Wevorce Expands to New Orleans, Bringing Amicable Divorce Technology and In-Person Services to the South

Tech Company Creates Combination of Trained Wevorce Mediators and Online Services to Keep Families Out of Costly Court Battles

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwired - Feb 9, 2015) - Wevorce, a company that offers an innovative technology platform and five step process to make every divorce amicable, announced today it's expanding its services with new offices in New Orleans, Louisiana as well as a new local certified Wevorce Architect in the area. Joining the New Orleans team is Certified Wevorce Architect Sarah Pfeiffer.

Wevorce is a technology company dedicated to changing divorce for good by keeping families out of court. Wevorce's trained mediators, financial professionals, and counselors focus on the emotional, financial and legal implications that are inevitable in every divorce. With a step-by-step approach, Wevorce helps couples divorce amicably using web-based technology to automate the paperwork, along with a community of trained attorney mediators to help untangle the complex issues and mitigate the mental anguish and financial burden of divorce, all at a fraction of the costs of a traditional divorce.

Wevorce has saved its clients over $2 million in legal fees in 2014 alone. Through the divorce archetypes it has developed, Wevorce can predict the costs and steps families need to take to settle their divorce with 97% accuracy, and it costs one-third of a typical divorce (the national avg. is $27,000). More than 300 families have been through the Wevorce process to date, and in 2014, Wevorce kept 100% of its families out of court. Every 13 seconds someone in this country is filing for a divorce, and Wevorce is helping families navigate through that very difficult time in their lives by walking them through the five-step process, including the financial, emotional, and legal steps that need to be taken. To date, Wevorce has 23 offices with staffed Wevorce Architects in 13 states and will continue its expansion throughout the year.

"Divorce is more than a legal problem and we believe in a whole new approach that keeps families out of court. Our trained divorce professionals, experts and technology platform have built a proven path forward for hundreds of families. Our five-step process ensures kids come first and costs remain affordable," said Michelle Crosby, CEO and Co-Founder of Wevorce. "Our Wevorce Architects set us apart from other family legal services because we can now offer that one-on-one counsel coupled with our online services. We are excited to bring our expertise to New Orleans and begin working with families in the area."
