Collaborative family law enables people to separate with dignity and reach a settlement that is fair for the whole family. The process takes place through a series of meetings where both people and their lawyers are all present, working as a team towards the same goals. Each person is supported, guided and advised throughout by his or her own lawyer, and correspondence between solicitors is kept to a minimum to better keep costs under control.
Everyone agrees at the outset that they will not take the dispute to court, and if the collaborative law process does not facilitate the participants to reach agreement, they must instruct entirely new lawyers to litigate.
