Collaborative Law & Divorce

A new holistic approach to family disputes

Collaborative Law offers a more holistic approach to resolving family disputes.

It offers the opportunity to find more creative and flexible solutions than might come out of formal legal proceedings and allows couples to focus on the issues that are important to them rather than the issues that a court might prioritise.

Collaborative Law can also help separating couples stay on more amicable terms and can be instrumental in maintaining channels of communication which are particularly important if children are involved. Participants have found that it can lead to sounder, longer lasting solutions without the need to attend court.

As part of the collaborative process each party retains their solicitor but instead of solicitors corresponding on the issues that arise, both parties come together with their legal representatives, meeting face to face to negotiate and “thrash out” the issues with the ultimate aim of reaching an agreement around the table and a solution can be tailored to the individual needs of the couple. Collaborative law offers the flexibility to find solutions that a court could not explore or achieve.

Not all cases are suitable for the collaborative process

Collaborative Law suits couples who wish to avoid the possible trauma and the uncertainty of legal proceedings and wish to play a more proactive role in finding their own solutions.
