Your LEGAL ACTION PLAN
Eric: “Saved over $700,000!”
Eric was involved in eight (yes 8!) years of protracted litigation. Before hiring us, he had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal fees. He owed over $800,000 in arrears of spousal and child support obligations based on an income he had NEVER made. Once he hired us and we applied the Better Divorce Project Method to his matter, within a few short weeks, his ex-spouse agreed to reduce his arrears to $100,000 and agreed to accept payments in monthly installments. His matter was finalized once and for all and for a very small investment.
And Linda: "Received a lump sum of arrears and support owed"
Linda had spent countless thousands on legal fees before hiring us. Although she had a court order requiring her spouse to pay her funds for child and spousal support, her spouse claimed (falsely, as it turns out) that he was unable to work, and arrears accumulated. This left Linda solely supporting her two teenage sons as a single parent, with no help. We applied the Better Divorce Project Method, and within a short time, we handed Linda a cheque for a lump sum amount which included the arrears and all future support owed to her.
And Ron: “Received a cheque for the amount he was entitled = $2,400,000
After over fourty years, Ron was kicked out of his family business by his wife and two adult children. When he hired us, he had been residing in a travel trailer on $2,000 per month for living expenses for several years. Meanwhile, his estranged wife continued to live in the valuable family property and ran the profitable business he had built. Ron came to us when his former lawyers wanted him to accept a deal for a fraction of what he was entitled to. We applied the Better Divorce Method, and although it took a year, we handed Ron a cheque for the amount he was entitled -- $2,400,000!
And Cory: “Quickly moved on with their lives in a drama-free way”
Cory and Rachel were going through a divorce, and they were tremendously fearful that the “other” one would drag them through the mud. Each feared tumultuous times, exorbitant legal fees, and never-ending drama. They hired us, and we applied the Better Divorce Project Method principles. Within a few weeks, Cory and Rachel reached a legally binding and final separation agreement that met both of their needs and allowed them to share parenting time with their now teenage children equally. They quickly moved on with their lives in a drama-free way, which benefited their children immensely.
Does the Better Divorce Project provide legal advice?
No, this is not legal advice. Every single case is different based upon your jurisdiction and unique circumstances. The Better Divorce Project is all about helping you with your strategy so you can avoid costly financial and emotional mistakes when navigating your divorce or separation.
What is the difference between legal advice and legal information?
Legal advice should only be provided by a lawyer or attorney you have hired and authorized to practice law in your jurisdiction. It is a one-on-one solicitor-client relationship. On the other hand, legal information explains the law and the legal system in general terms. The information is not tailored to a specific case. Legal advice applies the law, including statute, case law, and legal principles to your specific circumstances and legal information is more general and strategic in nature.
Do I still need a lawyer?
There are three key times to consult with a lawyer, otherwise, you can “drive” your own case, that is you can communicate with the other lawyer directly and only use a lawyer when necessary. This is when we say it is necessary:
Can you refer me to a lawyer you think would do a good job?
Depending on your jurisdiction, we have a limited number of lawyers that we recommend. These lawyers are highly trained in dispute resolution strategies and have gone through the “Be the BEST Divorce Lawyer Academy” and passed a qualification exam before being approved to be referred by us. We take our referrals very seriously.
Can’t I get all of this same information from working with a lawyer I hire?
You can hire your lawyer right from the beginning. That is what many people do. This program is about the equivalent price of 1.5 hours of the average lawyer’s time, yet jam-packed with hours upon hours of value and information. The information will still be useful even if deciding to hire a lawyer. You will know what kind of lawyer you want. You also get the added benefit of a community with people just like you that are there to support you, group coaching calls, and more that you would not get from working with your lawyer.
I like the idea of the information here but would rather have one on one consulting services. Does the Better Divorce Project provide one on one consulting?
The Better Divorce Project has a limited number of clients we can private consulting with. We provide legal information and strategy, but not legal advice.
You can learn more about our private one-on-one support here.
If you are not completely satisfied with The Better Divorce Project Program in the first 7 days, you can have your money back! No questions asked!
