Our Mission

Your Divorce. On Your Terms.

Meet Our Founder


Catherine Chrisentsen, Founder & CEO

Family Law Lawyer, CEO of Doing My Own Divorce and Valour Law.

Doing My Own Divorce was created by smart lawyers with big hearts. We get to help good people at affordable prices because we harnessed technology to cut out the overhead. You pay a flat rate or reasonable monthly fee and we provide self-help software and access to top notch legal assistance. We like people and problem solving and are looking forward to meeting you.



Why Doing My Own Divorce?

Many divorces have at least one self-represented party. The average divorce takes approximately 30 months and costs $36,000+ (per person). Clearly, it is time for a new option. 

By leveraging technology, utilizing legal assistants and offering access to fixed fee lawyers (when and if you need them), we have cut the average cost on Doing My Own Divorce to $3,500. 

We gain nothing from delay or perpetuating conflict (you only pay for what you need). Instead, we focus on providing transparency, efficiency and an empowering experience.  Goodbye stress, stigma and drama. Hello hassle free divorce.

What I Do Best

What I do best is make the law behind personal relationships more human and accessible. I have spent years collecting and analyzing data – client needs, wants, fears and legal issues. With this information I create products, services and a supportive, wellness-first platform that serves to decrease conflict, provide meaningful legal assistance and keep (ex) couples focused on the “end” result – a fresh start to a new chapter.
