Collaborative law is a welcome alternative to the destructive and uncomfortable aspects of a conventional divorce or separation. Your case remains private and is resolved without going to Court.
You and your ex-partner each appoint your own lawyer but, instead of conducting negotiations by letter or telephone, you meet together to work things out face to face. Your lawyer will be by your side throughout the entire process and legal advice will be given to you on the spot.
Collaborative law seeks to encourage couples to work together to reach the best outcome for your family and seeks to avoid the protracted and high-volumes of correspondence that can be exchanged in a conventional divorce or separation.
