This approach to building peacemaking practices into the end of relationships earned her a finalist position for Wellness Advocate of the Year in the Australian Law Awards 2019. Cade sees divorce as the beginning of a new chapter, the opportunity for clients to do things differently so they can move on to their lives post-divorce and co-parent successfully. She is emphatic that ”families don’t belong in court. The adversarial system pits one party against another, creates a winner and a loser and breeds more conflict between the parties. Research shows that it’s the conflict that hurts children.”
Half of all marriages end in divorce. Cade thinks we can and must improve how we approach this situation. ”The existing system is broken, the legal process takes too long and costs too much. Changing the laws alone is not enough. We need to change the thinking around how we see and do divorce. We need to learn to break up without destroying the family and bankrupting ourselves.” Cade’s method helps couples manage conflict, reframe the relationship and finalise all the paperwork. She helps couples to focus on the positives in their relationship, look for those silver linings, focus on the children, if any, and see the divorce as an opportunity to move on to bigger and better things.
Anne-Marie Cade’s Bio
Hi, I am Anne-Marie. I am also a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner / Nationally Accredited Mediator, Certified Divorce Coach, High Conflict Coach, Parent Coordinator and founder of Divorce Right.
I have created a revolutionary new way for clients to heal and get over divorce or break-up. I am passionate about family and relationships and I work with clients to empower them to improve communication, manage conflict and reach a peaceful, amicable separation, so they can successfully co-parent together. I incorporate mindfulness practices into my coaching and mediation sessions so my clients are able to get more centered and grounded and become more mindful about the decisions they make.
This unique method helps clients manage the conflict, re-frame their relationship with their partner and finalize all the paperwork so they can move on to the next chapter of your life. I believe that this approach will ensure a positive outcome for the family. I am currently working on my soon to be released book “Peaceful Divorce, Happy Kids.”
