ALTERNATIVES TO LITIGATION
Collaborative law is a process which offers separating couples an alternative to litigation. Instead of relying on the Court to determine what is fair, collaborative law offers the couple themselves the opportunity to agree what is right for their children and financially for themselves in collaboration with each other and their own solicitors in a series of four-way meetings.
The collaborative approach is fundamentally changing the way people think about family law. For couples who genuinely seek a fair solution, and want to minimize the pain of family breakdown, it may offer the very best way ahead.
Collaborative lawyers sign an agreement with you which disqualifies them from representing you in court if the collaborative process breaks down. This means they are absolutely committed to helping you find the best solutions; by agreement, rather than through conflict.
