What We Do
Divorce is a scary ride, but if you get the right support, it can land you in a great new place.
UNtied can be a big part of that support.
An online magazine and real life community, 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.
Our panel evenings 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.
Our workshops will help you cope with grief, ready you for online dating and help you re-shape your future. Our forums allow you to share and connect with like-minded women on the same road.
Our network of trusted experts – including career coaches, financial advisors, professional organizers, real estate experts, stylists, menopause experts, dating specialists, parenting counselors, divorce coaches, therapists and of course, divorce lawyers – will make you stronger and better able to cross what is likely the toughest bridge of your life.
And we will also be there for you on the other side of your split, on issues like dating, step parenting and even retirement.
Who We Are
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.

She is a fervent advocate for women and vulnerable populations, a student of bioethics, and a passionate runner.
