Collaborative law provides an alternative to traditional court proceedings when going through a divorce or separation and is often considered to be a more amicable route.
The collaborative law process can be used to negotiate your financial settlement, decide arrangements for children including contact, or set-out the terms of a pre-nuptial, post-nuptial or cohabitation agreement. A binding agreement can be reached through this process.
Court proceedings can be emotionally and financially draining, often involving lengthy procedures. To a large extent, the collaborative process can be built around your individual timetable and priorities, following agendas set by you and your partner.
Our Family and Divorce team includes collaboratively trained lawyers who can provide you with expert advice on the collaborative law process.
