Challenges and Solutions

There was quite a list of challenges for us to consider while developing Separate.us. We found solutions to all of them and here is what we did for it.

Complex decision tree

Problem:

A lot of factors influence the divorce process in California, and all of them should be taken into account. It greatly increases the number of questions and possible answers, so that makes the decision tree really big and complicated. The experience should yet stay “real-time-like”.

Solution:

We used graph databases to represent and store data.

Complex decision tree

Different PDF files to autofill

Problem:

American courts have standard questions to be answered for the divorce forms. But the PDF files for the same forms are different in different courts (and sometimes they are also poorly printed) what made their autofill quite a complicated task.

Solution:

We used CMS, where all the possible dialogs were built into a decision tree. After that, the dialogs were rendered and put into a database to save time and speed up the answer.

Results

Our team developed a smart online platform for people to deal with exhausting divorce paperwork. Separate.us made a complicated and expensive divorce process in California very simple and affordable.
