Collaborative law

What is collaborative law?

Collaborative law is a way for couples to manage their divorce or separation in a more amicable way. It is a non-adversarial, solution-orientated process.  Collaborative law involves a series of round-table meetings (known as four way meetings) with expert family lawyers to guide you through the process.

Couples can also use the process to reach Pre-Nuptial, Cohabitation and Pre-Civil Partnership Agreements.

The process can resolve financial matters as well as issues concerning children.  It is designed to avoid determining these issues at court.

What are the benefits for you?

The couple retain control over issues relating to children and finances.

  • it provides a safe and confidential environment in which the couple can express their concerns and negotiate an agreement.
  • it avoids court-litigation and the couple will not attend court.
  • it allows a couple to maintain a working relationship in the future, which can be important if the couple have children, or share social/business networks.
  • the process is non-aggressive.

You will always have one of our collaboratively trained lawyers by your side to help advise and guide you through the process.
