Divvito is aiming to make co-parenting communication easier by, as Wendy explained, “bringing the benefits of email to instant messaging”.
Technophobes grumble that smartphones and social media have made communication too cold and impersonal. When it comes to divorce, taking all the emotion out is probably a good thing. Melbourne startup DivorceRight, for example, has turned divorce proceedings into a process that can be completed without much hassle online. Now Perth startup Famylia has created an online platform to help separated parents effectively co-parent their children.
Lawyers in pop culture are often stereotyped as smug and greedy, stretching out cases for as long as possible to get as much money as they can. But in the real world lawyers, just like many other professionals, are looking to work as efficiently as possible, and are doing so by completing more work online for fixed fees.
Launched in September 2012, Our Children Australia is the nation’s first website providing separated parents with a platform to communicate and store information relating to their children in a secure and neutral environment.
