Curious if anyone has experience with Untie the Knot? Any recommendations or advice?
Legally separated, one more step.

I cannot speak to that service specifically, but I have used online legal resources in the past. My recommendation is that if there is *any* complexity or hostility to your divorce (e.g. custody of children, a lot of assets, etc.) then you need to hire a lawyer.

I didn't use a service. I went through the county clerk's office. Even if you go through a service, you still have to pay for all the county clerk fees. Most of the paperwork is available online.
Our kids see adults, we decided who got what debts and split the proceeds from selling the house.

we decided who got what debts
Just keep in mind that the creditor (owner of the debt) might have to agree to the new ownership of the debt, and that a lot of debt incurred during the marriage is considered marital debt even if taken out by one spouse. I would want written confirmation from all parties, and that any debt that could be considered marital be paid off with whatever assets are available.
For example: If your husband has a credit-card in his name and it carried a debt of 10k you want to be 100% clear the credit-card issuer acknowledges it’s his debt and hasn’t been used for marital benefits. Like if he took out 5k of the 10 to fix the marital home = probably marital debt.
We have had an occasional poster pop up here where the former spouse has forfeit on a debt and the collectors are knocking at the door. Chances are you would have to pay, but then have the option of suing the ex for the amount. Seeing as how the ex didn’t pay the original debt then good luck with that!
