If you don’t want to go to court, you can mediate your divorce, reach a reasonable resolution, and get all your paperwork signed and filed in as soon as three months.

Traditional divorce can take more than year and cost over $50,000 per person.  It can also quickly transform into all-out war.  At Better Apart® Online Divorce Mediation we offer a powerful alternative to the long, expensive and very public traditional approach to divorce. Our average flat rate divorce costs $15,000 (paid in several smaller payments) and takes only 3 months until you are filed with the court. All sessions take place online from the comfort your home, office, the beach or wherever else best suits your needs.  

Unlike taking your divorce to court, this method allows you to remain in full control of the entire process,  to avoid the customary public airing of your private matters, and dramatically reduces the risk of the process becoming overly-complicated or nasty.

Transform your divorce into a journey of growth with Better Apart Online Divorce Mediation. Gabrielle Hartley offers a unique, peaceful path through her Better Apart Method, ensuring a smooth, respectful process from the comfort of your home. Say goodbye to out of control hourly billing and hello to a reasonable divorce and new beginning in just 3 months.

Unlike traditional mediation, where you’re constantly aware of the “clock ticking” with hourly billing, Better Apart Mediation offers a straightforward monthly flat-fee and an efficient online journey through the process.

Some people have simpler cases and others need a little more time but for most people, three months is all you need to arrive at a full resolution of your divorce.

If you and your spouse are committed to a peaceful, out-of-court, divorce that prepares the way for a healthy post-divorce life for you and your family, then the first step in the process is to schedule a short consultation so we can discuss your specific situation.  

During this call, we’ll get clear on whether or not Better Apart Mediation is right for you, which option is best for your needs and how many sessions (some use more, some use less) will be required to achieve your goals. 

Traditional divorce litigation can cost $50,000 per person and can take more than a year.  

At Better Apart Online Divorce Mediation, on average most people pay as little as $15,000. That’s not a per person fee, that’s for the entire engagement through finalizing your divorce.  And, most people have all the agreement finished and the paperwork filed in less than three months!

It’s weird to say I love going to mediation, but I really do love having Gabrielle there. She brings bright moments, insightful stories, and fairness into the conversation. I absolutely love working with her, and will absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs her.

Gabrielle was incredibly helpful as I worked through the initial stages of helping a family member with their divorce proceedings. She was always timely in responding, and was very friendly and professional in correspondence. I would not hesitate to recommend that people reach out to her if needing to talk about your situation.

Gabrielle's book "Better Apart" was a God send. Helping me sort through the feelings and confusion when it comes to a relationship not working and needing to think about ending a marriage. It is not easy, and besides all the emotions you have to think about the legal side of things. This book help with both, helping to start to see a way forward for those who, like me, want to do as little damage as possible and try to preserve some dignity and friendship with my long time partner. Great book and its been so helpful working through it. Also had a great 20 minute consultation with Gabrielle which was so encouraging and hlepful.

We just finished our divorce agreement, and I couldn't be happier. Gabrielle helped us get through this process with her patience, knowledge, and compassion. Going through mediation instead of a traditional divorce is highly recommended. Gabrielle's reassurance and expertise will see you through it. Divorce doesn't have to be a battle!

HOW DOES BETTER APART DIVORCE MEDIATION WORK?

You and your spouse will have regularly scheduled weekly or biweekly online mediation sessions with Gabrielle during which time you will address custody, support, property division, asset and debt allocation, life insurance, health insurance and so much more.  You will arrive at a full and complete resolution and arrive at terms for your divorce separation agreement.

All sessions are online so you can attend from whatever location you find comfortable and convenient.

In between these meetings, you can talk, email and text with questions or concerns. In cases where lawyers are involved, Gabrielle will even have a separate meeting with the lawyers to iron out the most difficult entrenched conflict at no extra charge.

During the entire process, there will be no “meter” running. So you won’t feel any pressure that asking another question or digging deeper into a conversation creates a financial burden.

Gabrielle is focused on helping you move through the difficult process of divorce in a way that is simple, straightforward and designed to arrive at solutions that everyone involved can accept. 

Once the terms are arrived at, Gabrielle can provide for you the Separation Agreement (in NY and MA only), which can be used for filing, or to simply be provided with a Memorandum of understanding, which your lawyers can then draft for the court. 

Should you opt to have your lawyer draft the agreement, you have the option to have herl remain available to you for an additional month after the final meeting to answer questions that may arise during the drafting process. 

While Gabrielle is a divorce lawyer, during online divorce mediation process, she is serving in the unique role of a neutral third party. To preserve this neutrality, which is required to help facilitate the process to its completion, while she may share some legal information or insights, she will not offer legal advice to any party. 

While it is not mandatory, it is always a best practice to have a lawyer to consult with throughout the process before signing on the dotted line. The best time to get a lawyer is AFTER your first meeting.

Once you are finished with the process, the only thing left for you to do is to have your uncontested paperwork prepare.  Gabrielle can also shepherd you through this process. These documents are purely administrative and do not involve any of the heavy decision making and emotional lifting required by the mediation process.

The average cost of divorce per person using a traditional court process ranges from $10,000 to $100,000 per person. The costs are unpredictable and can become out of hand quickly. Better Apart® Online Divorce Mediation is not only more peaceful but is significantly less expensive and offers a flat rate predictable monthly pricing.

Schedule a consultation today and see how Better Apart Mediation can help you and your family navigate your divorce process.
