Choosing the Right Legal Help for Your Divorce

While Hello Divorce is less than a couple years old, I have been a practicing family law attorney for over a decade at Levine Family Law Group. A couple weeks ago a client came in for a second opinion. He had hired a lawyer 6 weeks prior and wasn’t even sure if his legal team had filed a petition to divorce, and couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone in his attorney’s office about the status of his case. Honestly,…

But What to Do With the Ring? (Hint: let it help open the door to your next chapter.)

In her book, “How to Catch a Man, How to Keep a Man, How to Get Rid of a Man,” the late Zsa Zsa Gabor wrote, “Diamonds are a better investment for a married woman than anything else because if it should ever happen that some day you wind up getting a divorce and all the property is being divided up, your husband will probably say, if he is a gentleman, ‘We will share all of the other property, but…

What Makes Hello Divorce Different From Online Document Preparers and Form Generating Software?

SPOILER: We are lawyers. They are not. Who needs a $400 per hour divorce lawyer on retainer who will bill you for every 3 1/2 minutes?

That’s why other options have popped up across the internet. Enter Hello Divorce.
