What is Wevorce?

Wevorce is the front page of heartbreak with over one million families coming to our site each year for our unlimited advice. Wevorce specializes in offering family-focused, respectful out-of-court solutions for families. 

Wevorce’s software and five step approach have helped settle more divorces than anyone else in the country. Their high-tech and high-touch approach allows families to settle their divorce online and at their own pace. They connect families to a Private Judge™ when they are ready to finalize their divorce from their own home with 100 percent privacy.

What is a Wevorce Private Judge™?

A Wevorce Private Judge is an arbitrator who brings at least 15 years of experience to your divorce. They have completed our certification course and maintain a higher customer service rating than Apple. 

Our Private Judges are best-in-class when it comes to offering you a high-tech and high-touch divorce experience. The result is the fastest and most affordable out-of-court solution available today. Private Judges are beholden to the law, yet remain impartial to resolve issues between you and your spouse. With a Wevorce Private Judge you can skip the courthouse and keep the kindness.

How is a Wevorce Private Judge™ different from a traditional judge?

A Wevorce Private Judge has similar experience to a traditional judge – they are just more cutting edge and specialize in amicable divorces rather than divorce litigation. Our Private Judges are trained in the latest technology, neuroscience and behavioral science, non-violent communication techniques, finance, tax implications and the law. They can respectfully finalize your divorce outside of a courtroom from the privacy of your own home, often within as little as 30 days. 

A traditional judge presides over divorce litigation proceedings reviewing motions, ordering hearings and conducts long, drawn out divorce trials. A traditional judge manages a heavy caseload and it can take them years to finalize a divorce.

Traditional judges focus on highly contentious family disputes where people need a judge, and often law enforcement, to order them how to parent or manage their finances. Wevorce Private Judges only work with families who seek alternative ways to address change and express disagreements to settle their divorce out-of-court and create sustainable, healthy co-parenting relationships.

How is a Private Judge™ different from a lawyer?

A lawyer is trained in litigation and civil procedure; they take sides and assign blame. They measure success in court wins and billable hours. A lawyer drives your legal strategy, files motions, obtains discovery, and takes you and your family through the local courthouse procedures for what can end up being years of your life. 

Our Wevorce Private Judges may be trained and have experience as a lawyer, judge, paralegal, or mediator. They understand that although divorce has legal implications, it is not a legal problem. Wevorce Private Judges charge flat fees so you know what to expect from the beginning. They use the latest technology and receive more training than a lawyer in neuro and behavioral science, financial and tax implications, child development, co-parenting techniques, and ― most importantly ― kindness. They are dedicated to guiding your family through this chapter as quickly and painlessly as possible.
