What is Collaborative Family law?
Collaborative law is a method of resolving a dispute with the aid of a lawyer, but without the courts.
Some of the goals of collaborative practice are to:-
- Achieve resolution in a way that is respectful, transparent and open; and
- To provide the foundation for an ongoing co-parenting or working relationship.
Rather than seeking to resolve the dispute via legal proceedings, collaborative law focuses on negotiation (generally face-to-face) with the other party and often other collaborative law trained professionals to facilitate a child and family focused discussion between both parties. The goal such discussions is to reach an agreement and an understanding based on an interest-based approach for the child, as opposed to our litigious or rights based approach.
