FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What is SPLIT?
A: SPLIT is a do-it-yourself, cost effective and straightforward online solution to divorce. SPLIT will guide you through all major aspects of property division, child custody and final agreements.
Q: What will using SPLIT cost?
A: SPLIT will cost you and your partner $249 per month each. Much less than using traditional non-software based processes. Most couples complete their SPLIT within a few months. When all your documentation and agreements have been completed and agreed upon, SPLIT will draft a final agreement that can be lodged at Family Court. (NB. Court lodgement fees are not included).
Q: Will SPLIT lodge documents at court on my behalf?
A: No. The SPLIT fee does not include the cost of court lodgements. However we can guide you through the steps that need to be taken to lodge stress-free.
Q: Will I need to engage a solicitor?
A: This is entirely up to you and your level of comfort. SPLIT is not a legal service, we are a guided service that will help you move through the divorce process. Most of our members do not feel the need to use legal advice until they are ready to execute the final agreement.
Q: How long will my divorce take using SPLIT?
A: This is entirely up to you. No timeclock is set. A divorce can be emotionally challenging and the SPLIT team understands that each person will need to set their own pace. Most members complete the Agreement within a few months.
Q: Should I invite my partner to SPLIT?
A: SPLIT works best when you invite your partner to join and collaborate with you. We provide the easy to use tools you both need to reach agreement on all your financial and parenting matters. As you both work work through the process you are prompted to agree on each aspect of your divorce. You can still use SPLIT without your partner to generate an agreement but it will not benefit from joint input.
