Founded by Family Law Attorney Allison Sleight, Break The Knot uses the agreements you and your spouse have created regarding assets, property division, and spousal support to file the necessary forms to start the divorce process. Also, child custody, and child support with your spouse if you have children.
Need additional services and help coming to an agreement with your spouse? No problem, we offer an a la carte menu of assistance when you need it. Our mediators can help you come to equitable agreements with your spouse if you both get stuck and can’t come to terms. We offer two hours with our certified mediators for a flat rate fee of $500.
You know what works best for you and your family. Break The Knot helps you and your spouse make your own decisions without attorneys and judges deciding. You control the process, agreements, and cost.
Once you register for a Break The Knot account, we send you a secure payment link for payment. It's $1,500 if you and your spouse don't have children, and $2,500 if you do.
Once payment is made, we create a protected online portal containing all your essential documents, including our initial questionnaire. Within 24 hours of payment, we send you a link to create your username and password, allowing you 24/7 access. We partner with SmartVault, a leader in online document storage and secure file sharing. Your secure portal lets you download/upload your files without compromising security, privacy, or convenience.
Information, you and your spouse, will need to gather before starting our questionnaire:
- Social Security Numbers
- Driver License Numbers
- Employment Information, including Income
- Bank Account(s) Information
- Life Insurance Policies
- Business, Retirement, Pensions, HSA, and other Benefit Information
- List of all Debts
- Personal Property Information
