Welcome to the future of law. We are eliminating the whole “fee for time” model in the legal industry and replacing it with a “fee for service” model.

74% of all divorces currently are being handled by no lawyers or only one lawyer.

membership options

Lawyers charge you by the hour, so you never know what it’s going to cost upfront. We don’t believe in that. With us, you know the exact price from the start. Go Premium and you even get unlimited support from a personal divorce / separation consultant.

The average cost of a single family law attorney is $17,250. Let’s Untie the Knot is a fraction of that price.

Meet Nicole

Nicole Schaefer is a Family Law attorney in Portland, Oregon. After handling many divorces & separations, she finally couldn’t take it anymore. “There has to be an easier way,” she screamed. And it turns out she was right: there is a better way. Nicole wants to help as many people as possible to get completely divorced easily, with help and guidance, but without needing a lawyer. Thus, letsuntietheknot.com was born.

Frequently Asked Questions

Typically if you file in person, the Court will want a check. However, since Oregon now has e-filing, you can pay by a credit card.

You can decide whether you want to be the petitioner and which one is the respondent. There is no advantage to being the petitioner over the respondent. The petitioner is the person who files the initial petition. Both of you will work together to decide how property is allocated and a parenting plan that works for you and your children.

You will be considered both separate clients and as a couple. Both of you need accounts, so that one of you can be Petitioner and one can be Respondent. You will negotiate and decide all property allocation, custody, etc on your own.

Only one of you needs to register. However, you will have to provide information for everyone involved in the divorce.

For nearly every question in each section, we have provided detailed information. Should you need further clarification, and you are not a Premium member, you can consult with one of our experts for a small fee. If you run into technical problems, we have technical support to assist you as well.

The package prices are the same whether you use Let’s Untie the Knot together or if you choose to have your own account.

Mediation is generally required for every divorcing couple in Oregon. However, if you feel you need more help, we have a panel of professionals for you to choose from: mediators, accountants, family law experts, child custody experts, and family counselors. To consult with these professionals, you will pay a small fee that is a fraction of the cost of outside professionals.

You can export all of your information and print it up for your new attorney. We will save your progress and you can return to Let’s Untie the Knot at any time. Alternatively, you can consult with one of the Attorneys we have standing by for a fraction of the price of an outside professional. Let’s Untie the Knot does not offer refunds after you’ve purchased a package and begun your divorce.

Yes. As you answer the questions in each section, we generate the forms you need. If you need to change or amend a form, simply go back to the question and change your answer.

We file for our Pro and Premium members. We do not file for our Basic members.

Our process is self-paced, meaning you control how long it takes for you and your spouse to complete the process. Generally speaking, in Oregon, an uncontested divorce takes about 6 months.

The cost to join Let’s Untie the Knot is free. You can generate your paperwork by answering questions. Other features and the ability to download those forms can be made available to you with package upgrades.

Oregon is not a “community property” state, so your spouse is not automatically entitled to your property upon marriage. However, Oregon does have a default of equitable distribution. Therefore, if you want certain property, make sure to note that in your petition.
Debt generally follows the spouse to which it belongs. If you have marital debt, you can choose to allocate it accordingly or split it amongst the two of you.
