Collaborative law is family law with co-operative strategies. The parties work together with their lawyers and specialists outside of court to reach a fair and just settlement. Should they not settle, the lawyers and specialists are disqualified from taking part in any subsequent court proceedings and the parties “start fresh” with new lawyers. Discretion Assured The process is completely private. Nobody needs to know what was discussed or agreed upon behind closed doors. Supported Decision-Making The parties make use of an expert team of professionals to customize an informed, legally-sound and fair settlement that works for them. Consensual Problem-Solving The parties retain control over their own solutions, without a judge interfering or imposing outside perspectives on them. Summary Overall, collaborative law is relatively inexpensive, promotes “win-win” resolutions, facilitates civilized, productive meetings between divorcing spouses or partners and offers greater peace of mind to its participants than many other processes.
