In fact, even if you’ve come to grips that divorce is the best option for you and/or your spouse, it’s still heart-breaking. But here’s the thing, most people come out of it so much happier.

Since she stepped down from the Divorce Court bench, Judge Lynn has endeared herself to her over half a million social media followers with her wit, charisma and practical relationship advice. Judge Lynn and Erin’s conversation ranged from whether or not “having your day in court” is important to getting over a cheater (and everywhere in between).…
A recent article in Law.com discusses the need for ingenuity in the legal field to include more options – like Hello Divorce – for consumers: “For example, we need new TurboTax-like tools for legal services—like East Bay lawyer Erin Levine’s Hello Divorce platform, where consumers can pay a monthly subscription to access guided, do-it-yourself tools with support from legal document preparers or lawyers where needed.
