Our Story

Long before divorces, our roots reaches back to our core years in the financial industry. Seemed like every day we were hearing stories of separating families spending tens and tens of thousands of dollars to be led through legal divorce processes that left them emotionally broken, mentally defeated and financially destroyed. Surely there had to be a better divorce?

Our Raison D’être

Our founders, along with financial TV personality Gail Vaz-Oxlade started asking how do we take a process that can be so fundamentally destructive and somehow make a better divorce?  We put our heads together and started investigating, researching and talking to other financial experts, lawyers, mediators, therapists and social workers. By 2008 The Common Sense Divorce was created.
