Collaborative Law

Collaborative law is new way for divorcing couples to attempt to deal with their disputes without going to court. Each person in the dispute can appoint their own lawyer but instead of the traditional method of negotiating by letter or phone, you have face to face meetings to resolve your disputes.

The process is designed to be more dignified and less aggressive than the traditional court process. It will help maintain amicable relationships and may reduce the stress experienced by friends and children. Court costs can be avoided and it will often end up cheaper in the long run. You and your former partner maintain some control and are don't have to let a judge decide on the outcome.

Having a lawyer is not essential, but it ensures that you are in the best negotiating position to make the most of the process.
