A note from

Anne-Marie Cade
our founder.

I am a lawyer and a mediator with many years of experience and this is my story. I am constantly hearing clients who are separating complain about the how frustrating the court process is. The adversarial approach does not work for families.

“Through my interactions with clients who were going through a separation, I realised how broken the system is from both a families’ and a lawyer’s perspective.”

Clients found themselves in a situation where the conflict with their spouse had escalated to a destructive court battle and they were spending a lot of money on legal fees. The traditional process drives couples apart and pits one against the other to determine a winner and a loser.The existing system is for those who want to fight it out. There is no standardized system for those who want to work together to re-frame their families.

“I have a passion and desire to remove the bureaucracy and open the channels of communication, to start shifting the thinking and cultivate conversations of resolution as opposed to adversarial debates. And in the process build humanity and empathy into the practice of the law because this is what separating families need.”

Hence the reason  I launched Divorce Right and decided to enter the start up world. I teamed up with technology professionals, mediators, experienced family lawyers, financial planners, counselors and psychologists and formulated my plan for a better way to Divorce.

“I am shifting the focus of divorce from legal wrangling to a healing process where a settlement and resolution is reached through communication and mediation. I care about your emotional well being.”

Divorce Right is different to what you will find in the market today. I have incorporated a collaborative approach into our four-step pathway which will enable couples to navigate their way through their divorce, by getting the necessary help to manage the predictable stresses of the divorce and work towards reaching an agreement which will work for their family. My mission is to guide you to “a better divorce”.

The approach I adopt to make the divorce process more amicable, easier, smoother and kinder using web based technology to automate paperwork and engage a community of professionals saw me win Australia’s top legal innovation prize in 2016.
