Collaborative Law is designed to focus on resolution and minimise conflict. Separating couples and their lawyers agree to make a good faith attempt to reach a mutually acceptable settlement without going to Court.
There are many advantages of Collaborative Law including:
- Retaining control of the process;
- Agreeing to not go to Court;
- Achieving a uniquely formulated solution tailored to suit your individual needs negotiated in an open and honest atmosphere;
- Preserve your relationship whilst achieving a family law settlement.
Collaborative Law involves you and your partner/spouse meeting with your respective lawyers in non-confrontational meetings to work towards an amicable resolution to your family law matters.
Collaborative Law is an atmosphere of openness and honesty, and where appropriate may involve other professionals such as accountants, financial advisors and counsellors providing specialised professional advice.
