Divorce is no easy road. In fact, it’s filled with some very complex, confusing procedures and processes, the most confounding of which can be the legal system.
But now, you can get it over with simply by pressing a button.
It’s Over Easy is a new website that takes couples through divorce for a starting fee of $750. Celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser developed the site to help people get divorced more easily, and she’s not at all worried it will put her out of business.
“I think there are always going to be families that have complicated, complex legal matters in their divorces,” she told CNN. For example, if there is abuse in the relationship, an online platform like this will not work for those cases. ”I think the majority of people that get divorced do not have those situations, and I really am hoping It’s Over Easy changes the face of divorce.” It’s great for the couple who want to keep control over the process and think they can agree on how to divide what they have amassed together.
It’s Over Easy promises to take clients, currently California and New York only, through the entire divorce process in just five easy steps (four if the couple is childless). The site even offers everything from templates for co-parenting schedules to advice on how to collaborate on and finalize divorce agreements.
Wasser, who is divorced, has represented Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian and Stevie Wonder over the span of her 23 year career. She tells her clients, “This too shall pass.”
“It’s a terrible time,” she said. “It’s frightening, it’s sad, you feel every emotion that you can imagine that’s negative. Knowing, however, that at the end it’s going to be a better situation for you and your family, that’s very hard to see.”
Whether those who visit the site end up using an attorney or not, Wasser believes users will come away more educated about the divorce process. Besides, she said, we already do so much online. “I tell people all the time, ‘You shop online, you bank online, you even date online and that may even be how you guys met,” she said. “So, you might as well give us a try.”
