When Elise first entered the separation process in 2010, she felt desperate to reach out to other women who’d been through it. She wanted to know if they were glad they had done it, how their kids survived, and whether they had any regrets. She wished she’d had some help finding the right lawyer, the right financial advisor and the right person to help her talk to her kids about the whole thing. Though the web offered personal blogs as well as some general divorce advice, there was no site that could introduce her to the best local resources or connect her to other women on the same road. A graduate of Columbia Journalism School, she worked in documentary film and later as a reporter/writer for magazines like New York and Gourmet, before launching UNtied in 2013. A student of all things divorce-related, her passion is to connect divorcing women to each other as well as to the most experienced and competent professionals in all fields related to their needs.

WHAT WE DO
Divorce is a scary ride, but with the right support, it can land you in a great new place. UNtied can be a big part of that support.
Through in-person and livestreamed events, as well as online forums, we connect you with other women going through the process and introduce you to professionals at the top of their fields who can provide you with crucial advice and information.
We cover topics ranging from getting back to work, to hiring the right attorney, to sex in midlife to paying for college as a re-singled parent. We also host workshops that will help you cope with grief, ready you for online dating and help you re-shape your future.
And we will also be there for you on the other side of your split, on issues like dating, step parenting and even retirement.
