Wevorce Expands to Portland, Bringing Amicable Divorce Technology and In-Person Services to the City

Tech Company Brings Trained Mediators and Online Platform to Portland to Keep Families Out of Costly Court Battles

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jan 28, 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 Portland, Oregon as well as new local certified Wevorce Architects in the area.

Wevorce is a technology company dedicated to changing divorce for good by keeping families out of court. Trained mediators, financial professionals, and counselors with Wevorce 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.

Joining the Portland team as Certified Wevorce Architects are Tonya Alexander, Jim O'Conner, and Dona Cullen.

"Every 13 seconds someone in this country is filing for a divorce, and we are here to help families navigate through that very difficult time in their lives by walking them through the process, including the financial, emotional, and legal steps that need to be taken," said Michelle Crosby, CEO and Co-Founder of Wevorce. "Wevorce is a movement; it's a new way to think about how to separate as a couple, but continue to co-parent peacefully, and keep families intact in a respectful way. We are excited to bring our services to Portland to help break the cycle of drawn-out, adversarial and costly divorces that have been costing families a small fortune."
