About 3StepNegotiation™

3StepNegotiation™ is designed for spouses to successfully negotiate the terms and conditions of their separation or divorce in an informative, secure, and private online environment. The goal and purpose of 3StepNegotiation™ is to help spouses reach a mutually beneficial settlement.

Separation and divorce, even under the best conditions, is a tough road to march, so our goal is to make the process as easy and affordable as possible. Once you and your spouse have reached an agreement through 3StepNegotiation™ we can connect you with a local lawyer or with 3StepDivorce™ to finalize your divorce.

3StepNegotiation™ is here for you because the tough part is often reaching an agreement.

Saves Money.

Approximately 99% of all divorces end in a settlement. This means the parties involved reach an agreement before they have a judge do it for them. The financial costs of a divorce trial can be devastating, not to mention the element of chance in any adversarial proceeding. So why not do it yourself? A divorce is too life changing to leave to chance. Spare yourself months of emotional because the chances are, you and your spouse will settle out of court in the end anyway.

With 3StepNegotiation™ you avoid this path of emotional exhaustion and financial destruction and reach your settlement in a smart, economical, and livable fashion.

Spares your emotions while negotiating.

Sometimes when couples negotiation face-to-face they sabotage the effort by accident. An unconscious shrug, sigh or roll of the eyes and the other spouse blows up. Sometimes this happens by accident.

3StepNegotiation™ allows you to communicate with your spouse without the risk of this bad body language. Distance negotiation makes for more controlled and logical proposals and responses. Professional Mediators find the same. They realize they can often help settle disputes much faster and more effectively through online communication software, much like 3StepNegotiation™ You and your spouse can carefully craft what it is you want to say or discuss. This way it is delivered with clarity and you no longer talk in circles. With 3StepNegotiation™, spouses speak to and with each other, not at each other.

Organizes everything for easy reference.

3StepNegotiation™ categorizes each discussion for easy reference and records it in a threaded format for easy reference and printing. In a threaded format, negotiations move from a proposal by one spouse to a response by the other and then discussion and counterproposals. This back and forth is essential to negotiations.

For each discussion, you and your spouse have the option to "shake hands" on an Agreement Statement in the "Agreements" area of your account. When your and your spouse get started, the simplicity of 3StepNegotiation™ makes it easy to keep going. But if you get stuck, you can stop and come back when your head is clear. The same for your spouse.

Once you resolve your issues, you print your "Agreement Summary" and take the next step to file for your divorce.
