SPLITFYI COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
WELCOME. We are an interactive space for people going dealing with divorce. Splitfyi is a community that provides connections to professionals who provide mediation, legal, and other counseling services for individuals facing the prospect of or going through a divorce. Before, during, and after the divorce process, there are countless questions and challenges everyone encounters. We strive to connect you with professionals that you can turn to for clarity in answering your most pressing questions and concerns.
We also aim to create a safe and trusted space for our members during one of the the most difficult moment of their lives. Members can share their thoughts, opinion and experiences with each other to help each other get through the difficult process of divorce. However, we want to make sure that all of our members can use our services safely. Therefore we have created these Community Guidelines that we expect all members to follow, so that this community may be a positive experience for everyone. However, we reserve the right to make final decisions to determine if content is inappropriate and will not be permitted in this community.
In order to participate in this community, you must create and register for a member account. You will need to create a name for yourself, and answer some basic questions about your experience with separation and divorce.
You will need to create a user name for yourself. You should not use a name that will allow others to identify you, such as by using or name, but by creating a private user name that will allow you to maintain your privacy. It may not refer to a place, contain obscene language, refer to political parties, religions or individuals, but be crafted in such a way as to allow you to maintain your anonymity and privacy. Our administrators will determine if a proposed name is inappropriate and if so, will request that it be changed.
Basic Personal Questions
During registration for an account, you will be asked to answer certain basic questions regarding your experience with divorce and separation matters. This information is for the use of our administrators only, and will not be shared to the community, but will enable us to provide more content that is suitable for our members. These questions will include the following: level of education, geographical home of member, years married or cohabitating, special divorce considerations such as military service and gay marriage, biggest concerns about divorce such as finances, child custody, mental health questions, and returning to work issues.
None of this information will be shared with other members, but will be used solely to allow us to provide services and content that will better serve membership.
We expect members to be respectful to one another. Divorce can bring out some strong opinions and heated topics.
