The Mission

Adieu is a social enterprise that helps separating families find their best way forward.

We enable people to get out of limbo and on to financial and parenting agreements that are amicable, equitable, feasible and finalised in days or weeks rather than months or years.

We use technology and innovative business models to enable new forms of access to justice. We provide both pro bono and profit-for-purpose services to create sustainable, scalable and purposeful change. We design for global impact.

We enable family lawyers to be more effective. We empower separating couples to find positive ways forward.

We were named Innovator of the Year in the 2020 Australian Accounting Awards and were winners of the ALMPA/LexisNexis Thought Leadership Award. We’re recipients of the Impact Investing Australia Growth Grant, the Federal Government’s Accelerating Commercialisation Grant and the Queensland Government’s Ignite Innovation Fund. We’ve been featured by Lawyers Weekly, ABC Radio, Nine News, Today Extra, The Courier Mail and The Sunday Mail.

We’re currently the focus of a research project with the University of Newcastle, led by Professor Tania Sourdin, Dean of Law and Foundation Chair and Director Australian Centre for Justice Innovation.

We’re a collective of professionals who has each been successful in our own field and brings a unique perspective to this problem.
