There seems to be an app for everything these days, so why not one to make breaking up less painful? Well, there is that. Connecticut couples who have made the decision to divorce might want to check out Amicable. This app touts itself as a one-stop shop for divorce, childcare and financial arrangements.
This digital divorce coach says it can help users through tough, emotional times. Essentially, developers of the app say it can whittle down time-consuming processes that could take up to nine months to about six weeks -- things like processing and converting legal documents. The app also claims it can help couples to iron out differences and come to amicable (hence the app's name) resolutions.
But it doesn't come without a price. For no-fuss, no-muss divorces, the app costs about 300 British pounds or almost $400 in U.S. funds. The price could escalate depending upon personal circumstances. But people are buying into it. There have been thousands of downloads of the app in 52 countries, and users are growing at a rate of about 30 percent a month.
But there is only so much a piece of technology can do. To get proper advice and direction, most couples would do well to enlist the help of divorce attorneys. A Connecticut lawyer will meet with his or her client one on one to explain those issues around divorce that may seem perplexing or confusing. Individual, personal attention may go a long way to alleviating the stress that might go hand in hand with the divorce process.
