The Collaborative Family Law Process

Divorce often conjures up images of nasty disputes between both parties. The Collaborative process, however, is a team approach to resolving legal issues.  Both spouses each engage a collaboratively trained lawyer and work together through a series of four-way meetings to arrive at a mutually satisfactory Separation Agreement.

Promoting constructive dialogue between couples in order to achieve their desired outcomes is a key reason that the Collaborative Lawyers’ practice has been gaining traction over the past several years.

It’s not surprising. Working together stands in sharp contrast to contested divorces which are public, time consuming, and much more expensive.

FAQ’s COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW:

Generally, the collaborative law process starts when both parties agree to use negotiations and mediations to settle their divorce amicably. This is done so a couple can reach a fair and equitable agreement based on realistic goals and reasonable judgment.

Collaborative law is a type of negotiation wherein the two parties with their lawyers meet face to face, together or separately, to negotiate a solution to the couple’s problems. Meanwhile, mediation is where a neutral third party aids a couple to communicate and find common ground that could solve their problems.

If you find yourself divorcing your partner, consider going for the collaborative option. This does not only cost less than a litigated divorce, but it also ensures that you part ways with your partner amicably instead of being irrevocably broken by the nature and pressures of the courtroom process.
