Week 2-3 Individual session
  • Use our smart tools to agree on what you’ve got and what it’s worth. Your accountant or financial adviser can also help you do this.

  • A third lawyer will also look at your situation and provide an independent view.

3. Explore your options and agree on a financial settlement

Week 4 Joint session Individual session
  • Instead of having to ’negotiate’ with your ex-partner, you each individually explore your options on your own using simple, intelligent tools and the support of your accountant or financial adviser.
  • Get real-time feedback on how fair and feasible each option is. This takes the advice of the 3 lawyers into account, and works out how well the option will work financially.
  • You then both come together with your mediator to create a final agreement by simply moving things around on a touchscreen. Your accountant or financial adviser helps you with tax and financial implications.
