Family Lawyers & Mediators – Collaborative Law

In collaborative law, each party has a legal advisor who also works with the other legal advisor to reach an agreement. The process is collaborative rather than adversarial with honest and open information sharing between the parties. It is more cost effective and less stressful than court processes.

The separating parties and their legal advisors have a series of 4 way meetings to reach an agreement.   However, if an agreement is not reached through the collaborative process then the solicitors cannot act for the parties any longer and they must seek new legal advisors.

For more details see The Collaborative Process, our Collaborative Law Information Sheet and our Collaboration Agreement.
