The Mission

We’re changing how humans resolve conflict through experiences, technologies and services that give people superpowers to navigate the conflict in their lives and find respectful, fair and mutual ways forward.

We founded Adieu on a single core idea: to illuminate a way forward. To reveal collaborative, positive and legally-sound ways forward when relationships breakdown, so people can get on with their lives sooner. It’s not healthy for humans to live in conflict and uncertainty, and this is especially true for children. Adieu is a game-changer for how we approach family breakdown around the world.

We’re a trans-disciplinary team of designers, lawyers, technologists, mediators, coaches, accountants and creatives who take a human-first approach. We’re passionate about self-determination, access to justice and enabling people to be at their best.

Our Core Beliefs

  • TRANSPARENCY: Using information to benefit and empower all rather than for the advantage of one,
  • CHILD FOCUS: Focusing on the needs of kids ahead of our own concerns,
  • BEST OUTCOME FOR EVERYONE: The best outcome for everyone involved rather than winners and losers,
  • ONGOING WORKING RELATIONSHIPS: Maintaining an ongoing working relationship rather than just completing a legal transaction,
  • CREATING SOLUTIONS TOGETHER: Creating solutions together rather than letting others determine our future.
  • HONESTY AND RESPECT: Being our best and acting with honesty and respect rather than giving into our fears,

The Team

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