SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2014) - 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 in the Bay Area, opening new offices in Oakland, Davis, and Monterey, which is in addition to its current San Mateo headquarters. Wevorce now offers its services to families in the Salinas, Monterey, San Jose, Berkeley, Oakland, Alameda, San Francisco, San Francisco Peninsula, Davis, and Sacramento areas.

Wevorce is a technology company dedicated to changing divorce for good by keeping families out of court. Trained mediators 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 this year 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.
