[UK] An Amicable Divorce With The Amicable App
Posted at Legal Practice Intelligence - 13 January 2017
An app launched in the UK provides an alternative to a “lawyer-led” divorce. The alternative is an "Amicable Divorce" using an app called the Amicable App.
Founded by divorce expert Kate Daly (traumatic divorce survivor) and technology entrepreneur Pip Wilson, the app is described as:
The simplest, fastest way to collect, share and communicate essential divorce information with your ex. Save thousands of pounds in legal fees by creating your own parenting plans, financial arrangements and settlements.
Amicable helps you build a dialogue with your ex to support your co-parenting in the future, not leave you bitter or dependant on lawyers to sort things out. You can upload all your financial information, photograph important documents and make settlement proposals in our easy to use templates.
There is a lot of anti-lawyer sentiment in the marketing of the app but perhaps technology like this could also be adapted for use by family lawyers as an additional service as part of their practice.
