Fairway Divorce Solutions® is about saving your assets, not destroying them

Time

The Fairway Process™ takes 120 days to Resolution after Financial Disclosure. The Traditional Process takes a minimum of 2 years, with an average of 3-5 years.

Stress

Using The Fairway Process™ means each client is guided through the process separately to empower non-emotional decision making.


With the traditional process, there is back and forth position bargaining, which results in a tug of war.

Cost

Fairway costs on average $5,000 per person to complete a settlement. The average cost of using the traditional process per person averages around $25,000.

Kids

With The Fairway Process™, the focus is on turning good intentions into good results by empowering both the children and the parents with a well thought out parenting plan.


The traditional process uses power plays, damaging affidavits and tactics that are destructive to the children and to co-parenting.

We promise to - Reduce Time, Reduce Cost, Reduce Stress, Protect the children and relationships...
