When it comes to co-parenting, this tool keeps things Fayr

It’s not a misspelling. It’s actually a meaningful acronym: Family Advocacy is Your Responsibility, or Fayr, a new(ish) co-parenting app that has quickly become my favorite to recommend – and it will be yours soon, too, if you’re looking for a thoughtfully designed co-parenting tool. Michael Daniels created Fayr to manage his own co-parenting relationship. After he and his wife divorced, he found himself spending more time tracking paperwork, daily logs and receipts – that he was later accused of…

LAWsome Podcast: Legal Marketing in Splitsville

CEO Erin Levine appears on the LAWsome podcast to discuss the evolution of Hello Divorce and what it takes to create a platform that is useful and personal at the same time. “She didn’t just create an app… We find out [in the show] that she gets into these places where people are fearful, then they’re angry, then there’s contention.

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,…

Guest Blog: Dr. Wendy Walsh on Breaking Up

By Dr. Wendy Walsh www.drwendywalsh.com There are so many ways to break up. Electronically, we unfollow, we de-friend. Breaking up can get complicated, and it can be difficult to remind yourself of just how lovable you are. Break-ups are a time to surround yourself with people who care, people who can remind you how to treat your body and mind. Break-ups are a time for us to be introspective and work on some of our issues, and get ready for…
