The story of Split.fyi
If you’re wondering how Split.fyi came about, we can sum that up for you in three words: “We lived it”.
We’re Heather and Laila, our experiences of the loneliness and isolation of divorce is what inspired us to create a pioneering platform and community so that nobody else has to go through what we did.
We’re two passionate divorce coaches and for us, Split.fyi is how we ‘walk our talk’ – how we simplify the overwhelm and empower anyone facing the life-changing thoughts, emotions, and processes that come before, during, or after divorce.
It was our own real-life experience that led us, in 2019, to have our first conversation about what would have really helped us, and work out how we could create such a thing for those coming after us. We wanted to pay it forward.
It soon became our purpose: building a trusted splitting resource and coaching platform with an encouraging community of those who understand or are in the same boat.
We’re passionate about providing essential tools, simplifying next steps – and welcoming you into an open-hearted community that enables you to be your own best advocate to make the best decisions looking forward.
We don’t think divorce has to be long and messy. We’re continuously updating our collection of reliable resources and supportive step-by-step guides for you to access and keep track of all in one place.
Split.fyi provides you with a safe place to connect, reclaim your inner strength, and get support every step of the way. It’s what we would have wanted when we were going through divorce. Quite simply, it’s the new way to start a new chapter.
“As you make the transition from US to Me to WE, Split.fyi provides you with a safe place to connect, reclaim your inner strength, and get support every step of the way.”
Struck by her own 10-year-long experience with divorce, Laila was exhausted and thrown by the complexities and lack of consolidated information to help her close that chapter. She longed for a safe place to access emotional and organizational help, with professionals, resources, tools, and a warm community of those who already understand the situation. Over time, this sparked Laila to create Split.fyi to propel more people in her situation forward. Laila focuses on being a positive thinking partner to help educate and support others to create their own personal roadmap, navigate the tides, and reclaim their confidence and inner balance.
