You may have heard of dating apps, now there are apps that help couples split up. Technology and apps are an integral part of our lives and it is no surprise that apps and online sites are attempting to help couples navigate the divorce process.
However, divorce is rarely simple or easy. If couples have issues involving alimony, child support, custody, retirement, and/or property, using a divorce app does not make a lot of sense. Additionally, the laws vary in different states and couples that use online apps to help them divorce may not be receiving sound legal advice.
Mistakes that may be made in a "do it yourself" divorce can't always be fixed, and/or the fix may be much more expensive than it would have been if an attorney was hired and it was completed correctly from the outset. In the article "Up next: Swipe right for a divorce" the pros and cons of divorce apps are explored.
