How does amica make sure everything is fair?

amica was designed by family lawyers to make sure it is accurate, clear and fair. amica’s artificial intelligence was built to consider all the things that need to be considered when working out what’s fair for both of you.

It takes into account things like the length of your relationship, your age and health needs, your contributions to the relationship (including taking care of children), future arrangements for taking care of children, how much you both earn, and your future needs.
