SnapDivorce® was created by a team of divorce professionals who, like you, were concerned about the animosity, stress, and out of control costs of the traditional divorce process. It was created for couples who want to divorce amicably with expert guidance from neutral divorce professionals.
SnapDivorce® was originally conceived by divorce attorney Kevin Handy while sitting in a courtroom waiting for a judge to hear a case that should never have ended up there. Mr. Handy’s client, Robert, was divorcing his wife of 30 years. Both Robert and has wife earned six-figure salaries. Both had sizable retirement accounts. At the outset of the case Mr. Handy had proposed a 50-50 division of assets that was fair and logical. It was rejected by his wife and her attorney. Instead, she fought with acrimony for more than 50%, even though Mr. Handy knew the court would eventually rule against her. But that morning—when the court, in fact, did rule against her—Mr. Handy felt no sense of victory.
The couple had wasted over a year of their precious time fighting. And they had wasted $60,000 of their marital money. That’s a college education. The down payment on a new house. A trip around the world, for two. Instead, the sum vaporized in the brutal arena of traditional divorce litigation, all to reach what Mr. Handy knew was the obvious and pre-determined outcome of the case. Most upsettingly to Mr. Handy, none of this was usual in divorce litigation.
- The unnecessary duplicate actions of other attorneys
- An unresponsive and overburdened court system
- And costs that exceeded all estimates.
If a couple is going to divorce anyway, he thought, why not get it over efficiently and at a reasonable cost? The level of waste in the system is absurd, and unnecessary. Mr. Handy was raised in a large family in a middle-class suburb outside Philadelphia. His father always taught him to spend his time and money wisely, and the behavior stuck, from the first job through the end of law school and into private practice. So that morning in divorce court, Mr. Handy had seen about as much as he could take of couples blowing everything for the sake of revenge.
It was when Mr. Handy thought, “if I was going through a divorce, how would I want to get it resolved?” that the idea for SnapDivorce® was born – a streamlined process that uses neutral divorce professionals to craft a fair professional result, eliminates the need for expensive attorneys, and keeps the parties out of the court, all for a reasonable flat fee.
Mr. Handy, along with his like-minded colleagues and other divorce professionals, worked to design SnapDivorce® for couples that don’t want to waste money or slug it out. Couples who want to retain control over a process that can be fair and simple.
