Inspired by a 9-year, high-conflict divorce and custody battle that was completely unnecessary, SplitSmart was born.

The two biggest problems in contested or litigated divorce is that everyone lies about money and that kids are put in the middle of their parents conflict. SplitSmart provides a solution to both through a simple process of organization.

Problem #1
On the money side, every state requires the parties to provide financial disclosures to each other. Although there are hundreds of rules, statutes and laws governing the disclosure & discovery process, to enforce those rules, one of the parties has to file a motion. Filing motions are expensive and, in court vernacular, a barrier to justice. Instead of protecting the common good, without compliance enforcement, these rules only serve to enable bad actors.

Bad actors, whether intentional or just unorganized, are the primary reason bills spiral out of control. When bills spiral up and clients aren't getting the outcomes the...

The two biggest problems in contested or litigated divorce is that everyone lies about money and that kids are put in the middle of their parents conflict. SplitSmart provides a solution to both through a simple process of organization.

Problem #1
On the money side, every state requires the parties to provide financial disclosures to each other. Although there are hundreds of rules, statutes and laws governing the disclosure & discovery process, to enforce those rules, one of the parties has to file a motion. Filing motions are expensive and, in court vernacular, a barrier to justice. Instead of protecting the common good, without compliance enforcement, these rules only serve to enable bad actors.

Bad actors, whether intentional or just unorganized, are the primary reason bills spiral out of control. When bills spiral up and clients aren't getting the outcomes they hoped for, lawyers have a heightened risk of not getting paid AND having a grievance filed against them.

Solution #1
SplitSmart's discovery solution does two things: provides a passive, yet effective compliance enforcement system for the court, and, for lawyers and litigants, it instills individual accountability to the process. Combined, mitigates and minimizes the discovery games typical to contested divorce.

Due to streamlined discovery management, accountability and passive enforcement of the rules, attorney/paralegal time is slashed as are the volume of motions and hearings. Lawyers get paid, client satisfaction increases and everyone wins.

Problem #2
Contested custody is about money, control and or hatred, it's not about what's best for the child.

Solution #2
SplitSmart uses a line-item negotiation approach for parents to determine parenting plans, schedules and child support. Designed as guardrails to keep parents focused and emotions in check, hostile parents can reach amicable agreements that are child focused and stand the test of time.
